Recently at the HIGICC meeting, USDA (GEO Branch) made a presentation on a new upcoming Hawaiian Islands ImageServer Service. I just want to announce that USDA (GEO) has went live with a new Hawaiian Island’s ImageServer Service on 5/11/2021. Yesterday, I asked USGS, Census, State of Hawaii and the University of Hawaii-Hilo to test the new USDA (GEO) service. All tested the service successfully.
The following are links to the new service:
Hawaii Public Image Service:https://nrcsgeoservices.sc.egov.usda.gov/arcgis/rest/services/ortho_imagery/hawaii_vivid/ImageServer
Hawaii Public Metadata Service: https://nrcsgeoservices.sc.egov.usda.gov/arcgis/rest/services/ortho_imagery/hawaii_vivid_metadata/MapServer
The imagery listed above is available to the general public. This service cannot be resold as a service by a third party. The data is licensed from Maxar-DigitalGlobe. It is 50 cm, four bands of orthoimagery mostly from 2019 and 2020. Maxar allows USDA to serve this data to the general public as long as the publicly available ImageServer service does not allow a data download function.
