No, you do not need to be a subscriber. The print and image purchase menu appears below the Image Viewer for all users. Subscribers do receive an additional discount though, so it may be worth considering.
The logos and copyright information will remain on purchased imagery. They will be much smaller on purchased imagery as the size requirement is the exact same but will be present on a much larger image.
Weíve tailored our print sizes to match up with popular frame sizes. If you are looking to do a custom size, you can purchase a digital image and then have a print shop print the image at the size that you are looking for. For larger projects, we can provide custom maps for an additional consulting fee starting at $125.00 per hour with a minimum of 4 hours.
Please consult the purchase menu at the bottom of the image viewer to find out the current costs of digital images. The price will depend on the size of the image as well as whether you want the basic image, which is in JPG format and comes with a World File, or the complete image, which contains the basic image plus the image in the following formats: PNG, TIF, PSD, PDF, BMP, and GIF.
Georeferenced JPG image download includes a georeferenced world file that provides the ability to import the image into GIS (ESRI ArcMap/ArcGIS) or CAD (AutoCAD) software. The world file is a plain text format which contains the geographic coordinates for the image. A ReadMe.txt file is also included with metadata such as projection, date, resolution and other important information.
The complete image will be more useful to users who need to utilize the image in multiple software programs and would benefit from having it converted and available in multiple formats. The complete image contains everything that the basic image contains in addition to the image in the following formats: PNG, TIF, PSD, PDF, BMP, and GIF.
The complete image costs more because of the software involved in converting the images to these different file types. Often times, the software required to read these files is free while the software to create these file types is very expensive.
We strongly encourage all of our users to preview imagery as much as possible prior to purchase. We do not issue refunds on purchased imagery because the customer selects the exact image to be purchased and has multiple opportunities to ensure that they are ordering the correct image. Again, please preview your imagery before you purchase it.
You may preview an image by clicking on either the image file size or print size under the Image Viewer. You may also click on the Preview link in your shopping cart once you have added an image or print to your cart. The image on the left will be the area that the image covers while the image on the right will show the quality of the surface at the zoom level and size that you have decided on. The image on the right is the most important. If this is blurry or does not look right, you will need to change your zoom level or image/print size.
You may purchase an image or print by placing a check mark next to the image size that you would like to purchase. You may check more than one box if you would like multiple sizes of the same image. Once you have checked all of the applicable boxes, click on the Add to Cart button at the bottom of the page. Once you have added all of the imagery that you intend to purchase to your cart, you may click on the Checkout button at the bottom of the Shopping Cart page and enter your payment information.
