Denver Regional Aerial Photography Project

The Denver Regional Aerial Photography Project (DRAPP) is facilitated by DRCOG for the benefit of local, regional, state, and federal partners. The goal, which has been pursued since 2002, is to acquire high resolution aerial photography of the Denver Region every two years.

Imagery is the primary deliverable, but other products such as elevation data (e.g. LiDAR, DEMs, contours) and planimetrics (e.g. edge of pavement, building footprints) may be procured under the DRAPP umbrella if the need and funding exist.

DRAPP is consistently seen as a valuable DRCOG project because it passes cost savings onto partners, increases collaboration in the region, and reduces duplication of effort.

The 2016 project has recently concluded and planning for 2018 is underway. 

Past DRAPP imagery is available for purchase from Harris MapMart, Inc. and Sanborn Map Company, Inc.
