Introducing EagleView: Ortho and Oblique Imagery Viewer and What It Can Do for You

We are excited to announce and share EagleView, a new software available to city staff. We believe this software can serve as an invaluable asset for various departments. Read on to find out how EagleView may benefit your team.

What is EagleView?  

EagleView is an imagery and analytics software which provides high resolution ortho and oblique imagery. EagleView also offers a range of built-in tools, software add-ins, and integrations with other city software to best serve your imagery needs. 


Orthoimagery vs. Oblique Imagery  

Orthoimagery – is a top-down, bird’s-eye view of imagery. This is what you typically see in most maps and applications. 


Oblique Imagery – Aerial photography which is collected at an angle, usually downward at a 40° to 50° angle to the ground to provide a “side view” for buildings and other features.


What can EagleView do for me?

Depending on your needs, EagleView imagery can be an asset in a range of use cases. From event planning to GIS analysis tool expansion, to high resolution image referencing, there are several assets the software can provide. Below are some examples of how EagleView may benefit your department.


  • View images of emergency response locations,
