We display a great deal of aerial imagery on our web site, particularly with our MapGuide Maps and Pictometry Aerial Photos. Except for individual Pictometry photos that can be downloaded with the Pictometry Viewer on our web site, we do not provide orthophotos or other aerial imagery in digital file format to the public. Imagery files are not available for download from our web site or our GIS Data FTP Server. We get most imagery from other sources and don't have the rights to distribute the digital files. However you can read about the imagery we have and our sources on our web site and then contact the source to see if you can acquire the imagery from that agency. See GIS Library Imagery for information on the orthophotos we have and their sources.
Those working on county or other government projects should contact to determine imagery availability.
The Pictometry Viewer at Pictometry Aerial Photos has a Download Photo as JPG tool button that allows saving the original JPG photo file for the displayed photo. These are generally oblique (angled) photos but the viewer can also display and download small, individual orthophotos.
The Pima County DOT Engineering Information Management (EIM) section maintains a library of historical paper and mylar imagery. Hard copies are available for a nominal reproduction cost. While you can't see these photos on the web, you can use the Aerial Photo Lookup page to identify available photos that might meet your needs. If you find photos of interest, you can contact the EIM counter at 520-724-6332 to request copies and ordering details. You can also call them to determine what might be available. You may want to visit the EIM counter located at 201 N. Stone Av., 5th floor during business hours to review available photos.
The Pima County Regional Flood Control District has historical aerial photos related to their work. They include photos on their Historical Aerial Photos page and others that are not available online. You may be able to see these at their customer service counter. See their web site for contact information.
Aerial imagery firms such as Landiscor and Cooper Aerial Surveys are additional sources you may want to check.
