Welcome to the Massachusetts Department of Tstatehouseransportation (MassDOT) web-based Oblique Imagery Viewer. This viewer provides access to the entire Massachusetts statewide digital color oblique image library. MassDOT purchased an image library, captured in 2008, comprised of 8-inch resolution oblique imagery (images taken at approximately a 45 degree angle), captured from four directions (north, south, east, and west), plus the nadir (overhead view). The web-based viewer provides the ability to find an image of interest, perform measurements (licensed users only), add text, export to an image file, and print the image.


Public access users can access the application by selecting the PA Public Access link below. For directions on the application use, click on the Quick Start Guide. In addition, topic specific Video Tutorials are available covering all features of the application. Measurement tools are only available to licensed users (state, regional, and municipal staff).


Current users of the desktop software should be familiar with many of the features found in that version, presented in a web interface. If you are new to the use of oblique imagery, click on the Quick Start Guide link below or any one of the topic specific Video Tutorials to help guide you through the use of the application.

To get started, you will need a username and password, which will be supplied to you by the "Organization Administrator" for your agency. If you do not know who the administrator is or would like to become one for your agency, please send an email with your Name, Agency, Phone Number and Email Address to Kevin Lopes at

Once you receive your username and password, you can click on the Pictometry Online Application link below. A Trusted Certificate message will appear. Click yes on this message and it will not appear again. You can then proceed to login and use the software.
