Multiple Image Sizes Available:
We offer digital downloads in multiple pixel sizes ranging from 1500 x 1500 px to 3500 x 3500 px. Larger file sizes can be printed at a higher DPI and print size.
Georeferenced World File:
For an additional fee, image downloads can include 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.
Multiple File Types:
We offer three different types of downloads: Image Only - JPG, Georeferenced JPG, and Complete All Files. The Image Only - JPG file contains the image in the .jpg format that is a relatively universal image format. The Georeferenced JPG file contains the .jpg image plus a georeferenced world file. The Complete All Files file contains the image in all of the following formats: jpg, png, tif, psd, pdf, bmp, and gif plus georeferenced world file.
.jpg (Joint Photgraphics Expert Group) This is the most common image format used on the internet. This will work in most imagery programs.
.png (Portable Network Graphics) This lossless image format is able to maintain sharp edges. PNG is a better choice for storing images that contain text, line art, or other images with sharp transitions. It also supports layers.
.tif (Tagged Image File Format) Some older GIS software will only import TIFF images. These file sizes tend to be larger, but the image is lossless and tends to be the best image out of the various formats.
.psd (Adobe Photoshop) This format is the type used in Adobe Photoshop, the current market leader for commercial bitmap and image manipulation.
.pdf (Portable Document Format) Each PDF file encapsulates a complete description of a 2D document that includes the text, fonts, images, and 2D vector graphics. This format is read by Adobe Acrobat and Reader.
.bmp (Bitmap Image) An uncompressed file used by the Windows OS that is typically very large.
.gif (Graphics Interchange Format) An 8-bit-per-pixel bitmap format that is in wide use on the Internet due to its portability. This will support animation but is limited to 256 distinct colors, making it not suitable for a high resolution imagery.
