We updated our basemap in Washington, DC with aerial imagery at 3 inch (7.5 cm) resolution. The source data is openly licensed by DC.gov, thanks to the District’s open data initiative.
Cherry blossoms at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial
Nationals Park, in the Navy Yard neighborhood
Union Station and its plaza, with the Thurgood Marshall Federal Judiciary Building in the lower right
A concert in Freedom Plaza
The imagery is ready for tracing in OpenStreetMap, where its high resolution will help with detail mapping for buildings, parks, and navigation features like turn lanes.
Enjoy the imagery, and keep an eye on our blog for more updates!
