About the Data

Data Sources

All aerial photography and map layer data is acquired from federal, state, and local government sources. MapWise processes much of the data to make it more useful and easier to use. We also create new layers that are derived from the original data.

Information update frequencies vary between counties. Generally, the larger central and south Florida counties are updated more often than the rural and panhandle counties.

Data Coverage

Some map layers do not cover the entire state. In some areas of the state, either the government has not mapped that area, or we have not yet acquired the information. For more information on what is available where, please consult the Map Layer Directory or contact us.
