As part of New Jersey's statewide GIS coordination program, orthoimagery is made available as specialized web services known as map services. Map services allow the user's computer or device to access imagery on demand via an internet connection without the need to download the imagery's source data files. In addition to the entire catalog of imagery available in WMS format , OGIS has begun to publish high demand imagery as cached map services available as both an ArcGIS REST and also in WMTS.
Imagery consumed in the WMS format is dynamically rendered on the fly by the server and often provides the best fidelity with the source data files. Imagery consumed from a cached service, whether ArcGIS REST or WMTS, typically displays more quickly and can scale to a high number of simultaneous users without a degradation in performance. OGIS reccomends use of cached map services where available to provide the best end user experience.

In addition to the cached map services, orthoimagery is delivered in an Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) compliant web map service (WMS), which is compatible with a broad range of client software.
For one example of a free client, see: http://www.thecarbonproject.com/Products/Gaia.
Please be aware that there are size limits on images requested from our WMS.
To limit the load on our servers, the maximum image width and length is 3840 x 3840.
