The King County GIS Center is pleased to announce the addition of 2007 color aerial photos to all iMAP map sets. This set of aerial photography was acquired in July 2007 at a resolution of 6-inches-per-pixel for western King County and one-foot-per-pixel for non-urbanized areas of Eastern King County. The new photos, acquired from Pictometry, represent the second wide-scale aerial imagery update for King County since 2002. The next image acquisition is scheduled for summer 2009.
