  2. 2. When colors don’t match… If you want to combine images from multiple sources/jurisdictions, it might not look very good.
  3. 3. A lot of things can make the images appear different and less than ideal • Images might have been taken with different cameras. • Images might have been processed differently. • Images might look hazy. • The colors might appear “off” or different.

  5. 5. When you can have this!

  8. 8. Overview of Processes (continued) You have to have a free account with the FDOT A Plus website in order to be able to download large sets of images, such as for an entire county. You submit a request and they will e-mail you a temporary link where you can download the images (it might take them a few days to fill the request) You don’t need an account if you just want to download several images. Another option is using the website. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s LABINS website is a clearinghouse for all sorts of GIS data, including aerial imagery. You can download one high-resolution image at a time using the Quick Search map or you can purchase larger sets of data from LABINS. See for details
