Licensure and State Regulations for Georeferenced Imagery, Authoritative Ortho Mosaics, Lidar, and Topographic Survey
The ASPRS Professional Practice Division (PPD) maintains an online resource to provide up-to-date information on the current State regulations relative to the provision of georeferenced imagery, authoritative orthophotography (ortho mosaics), lidar, and topographic survey services. Each state is color-coded relative to the existence of regulations for each of the categories. A link to the state statutes is provided. The information is presented on a map interface under the following links:

The online map represents ASPRS’ best effort at determining current State licensing requirements for photogrammetry and related remote sensing services. This map is not a definitive interpretation of State laws or requirements. It is intended as a resource to assist photogrammetric mapping and remote sensing professionals in determining specific State requirements.
