New York City and Long Island 2017 Orthoimagery

This map will soon be discontinued and will phase out all downloadable maps during 2021. They offer a poor experience on Garmin devices due to restrictions the company has placed on their “custom map” format which constrains them to only one zoom level of limited size. And Mobile Atlas Creator/Java installation is just too difficult and problematic. To use your Android phone or iPhone as a GPS with Boyd’s Maps (and more), install the free boydsmaps web app, currently available in beta. Just go to on your phone to get started!

2017 aerial imagery covering New York City and Long Island at three foot per pixel resolution (level 17) from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP). The original imagery was filmed by the USDA-FSA Aerial Photography Field Office during the growing season. It was originally captured in 20,000 pixel strips from twin engine turboprop aircraft flying at an altitude of approximately 16,500 feet above mean terrain and it has a horizontal accuracy of plus or minus five meters. 

This map is provided in a universal format that uses Mobile Atlas Creator, a free open source program running on Windows, Macintosh and Linux computers. Mobile Atlas Creator allows you to select any portion of the map and export it to your favorite iOS and Android apps, desktop software, Garmin handheld GPS devices and more. An included tutorial, written for beginners, will walk you through each step of installing and using the software.
