The State of Oregon’s navigatOR program is pleased to announce the new generation of the Oregon Imagery Explorer. In concert with the Oregon Explorer team, we hired Esri Consulting Services to develop the new site.
You will find much of the same functionality from the old Imagery Explorer site, in addition to many new features and data. Imagery Explorer now provides streaming and download access to five generations of statewide aerial imagery: 1995, 2000, 2005, 2009, 2011, with the addition of 2009 and 2011 Color Infrared, Pictometry orthophotos in selected urban centers, bare earth hillshade, and other products derived from available Lidar data. The new functionality uses either a swipe tool or transparency overlay tool to compare imagery from any available year to another year, or to the bare hillshade.
In addition to the Imagery Explorer Application, the same imagery and Lidar-derived products can be accessed through web services in your web or desktop client of choice, allowing you to access the data without having to download and store it.
