Displaying Orthophotos

In this video I cover some of the basics of displaying panchromatic, 3-band, and 4-band orthophotos.  Although  this video makes use of Vermont data the information is relevant to anyone who uses orthophotographs.

Access orthophotos in VT using Map Services

Downloading imagery can be slow, plus it takes up a lot of disk space.  The good folks at the Vermont Center for Geographic Information (VCGI) have put together a collection of map services that allow one to stream the best available color and pancromatic orthophotos in VT into ArcGIS.  It's simple, it's easy, and it's fast.  This short video will show you how to make use of the VCGI image map services within ArcGIS 10.
