2015 Digital Orthophotography
In 2015, the North Central Texas Council of Governments facilitated the cooperative purchase of 4-band, 3-inch and 6-inch resolution digital aerial photography (orthos) for over 7,500 square miles of the NCTCOG region including all of Collin, Dallas, Denton, Tarrant and Rockwall counties and portions of Hunt, Kaufman, Ellis, Johnson, Hood, Navarro, Parker, Palo Pinto and Wise counties.
Georeferenced TIFF images are sold in 3,000' x 2,000' tiles, or 0.215 square miles. Sample images and a shapefile of the tile structure may be downloaded below:
The coverage area for 2015 includes Dallas, Fort Worth, and surrounding urban and rural counties totaling 7,523 square miles, of which 448 square miles is 3” resolution. Four areas of 6” true orthoimagery were produced over the central business districts of Dallas and Fort Worth, as well as the I-635/US-75 intersection and the Dallas North Tollway corridor from I-635 to Keller Springs Parkway, totaling approximately 24 square miles.
