I need to do basic research with the orthophoto over a huge area which is going to run over budget and use my whole hard drive. Is there a way to just view the data without downloading it?

Yes! FBS offers two subscription based options to explore our data libraries through either an internet browser VuMAP, or, using your own CAD or GIS software using MapCast.

How can I use the imagery offline?

Imagery can purchased and downloaded in 500m x 500m tiles through MapWarehouse.
