The Community Planning Association coordinated a multi-agency orthophotography project for Ada County in May 2000. Digital orthophotography products and associated planimetric data are available. The product is sold in square mile sections that include high resolution photography and contour information.
The project is divided into urban and rural areas.
Urban resolution products are $335 per section, while rural resolution products are $95 per section with price breaks available for multiple purchases. For further information contact the GIS Department at 475-2245 or 475-2246.
