Check with you local county government.  Some have an aerial mapping area.
Usually associated with the tax assessor or the environmental departments.
You can usually overlay property lines, flood zones, census tracts, etc.

Does anyone know of a source of RECENT Aerial/Satellite photos that could be
used as a map ? I believe that Xastir has a way to convert photos to a map
if you can calibrate the photo to known points.

I just recently moved to a 30 acre property in South Carolina. Before summer
comes (ATV and Yard work)I was thinking of installing a small tracker on the
ATV and Tractor. The property is very wooded and "rough" so once you go
beyond one or 2 acres you can't see anything from the home.

I have searched for the past several months on the internet for images that
I can use for APRS but also for personal use since this was dense woods and
we have done a lot of commercial logging here. I would like to purchase an
older photo and another one taken after October of this year to see the
impact. If anyone has any leads I would appreicate it. My last choice is to
set out markers on all four corners I guess then hire a local crop duster to
take me up with a camera, I can then apply the lat/long to the 4 markers and
hopefully import it into Xaster or UIView32.
