The Who, What, and Where of Utah's Statewide High-Resolution Imagery and Basemap Usage

Thanks to survey responses from users and metrics from the imagery server logs, we've learned a lot about the value being derived from Utah's Google imagery license and cloud-hosted base map server. We've also have good input on what users expect going forward.

And, finally, we've got a pretty picture to complement the survey. Fittingly, the imagery and base map use patterns, at the finest scales, over the past 18 months make for an interesting map.
