Oblique Imagery of the West Coast

The National Geodetic Survey (NGS) deployed the NOAA Office of Marine and Aviation Operation’s King Air aircraft to complete the collection of geo-referenced oblique imagery of the West Coast. More than 3,000 images were collected from the U.S.-Mexico border to Cape Flattery, WA. The imagery will be used to assess impacts of the ongoing El Niño event in several NOS mission areas, including navigation and coastal zone management. The imagery also supports the work of mission partners, including other NOAA offices, the U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Federal Emergency Management Agency, and state, local, and academic interests. The data are in the public domain, and baseline imagery from September 2015 is available for comparison purposes.

See below for oblique geo-referenced imagery of the entire West Coast collected Feb 6-9 2016. On the same site is baseline imagery under the 2015 tab of imagery collected in September 2015. The data is considered public domain and you are encouraged to share with other interested parties.
