Regional GIS Data
Where can I find Regional GIS Data?
Regional and Statewide datasets are available through the VGIS portal, www.vcgi.org, which is run by the Vermont Center for Geographic Information (VCGI).

Digital orthophotography (aerial photos corrected for elevation and airplane/camera distortions) comes in several flavors in Vermont. The Vermont Mapping Program has B/W photos with a nominal scale of 1:5000 (1″ = 417′) with 0.5 meter pixels. Also available are the USDA National Agricultural Imagery Program (NAIP) color 1-meter photos taken in August/September of 2003, 2008 and 2009. These are available through VCGI’s image library individually or an external drive for statewide coverage.
