Connecticut Aerial Photography Mosaics

Welcome to Connecticut's most complete collection of online aerial photography mosaics. To view aerial photography mosaics from different years, click the drop down menu in the top right corner of the map. Users can also toggle layers on or off by clicking the associated check box.

MAGIC_WMS_instructionsAttention ArcGIS and other GIS software users! The 1934 Aerial Photography layer is available via MAGIC's WMS.

CT_ECO_Map_Services ArcGIS software users can access high quality imagery for 2010, 2006, 2004, 1990, 2009 CRCOG and more via the CT ECO Map Services.

Search any Connecticut address to compare aerial imagery from two time periods, side by side. Our default map displays 1934 versus the current satellite view (with additional layers from the 1950s, 1970s, and 1990s to come). For example, view the influence of post-war interstate highway development on urban neighborhoods (such as the I-84 exchange in Hartford’s Parkville neighborhood), or suburban commercial and residential development on formerly rural farmland (such as WestFarms Mall in Farmington/West Hartford).
