View Yukon aerial photos and satellite images

The Government of Yukon provides the public access to aerial photos and satellite images of Yukon.

Aerial photos

Aerial photos are the most detailed images available of communities and transportation corridors.  Orthophotos are aerial photos that have been corrected. In orthophotos, the distances are uniform and can be measured like a map.

GeoYukon has orthophotos available to view and download.

Satellite images

These images are photos of the earth’s surface taken from a satellite. These satellite images are organized into 3 groups. The groupings are based on their resolution or level of detail.

  • High resolution, where you can see details less than 1 metre wide.
  • Medium resolution, where you can see details between 1 metre and 5 metres wide.
  • Low resolution, where you can see details more than 5 metres wide.

You can view satellite images on GeoYukon but you can't download them. This is because of licensing restrictions.

How to access aerial photos and satellite images

  • Use GeoYukon to:
    • view and print aerial photos and satellite images;
    • view and download aerial orthophotos; and 
    • view, print and download the extent, or footprint, of each image.
  • Use image data services to access images for your own private use. For example, to display an image on your digital map. We update image services automatically when data is created or changed. Note: You cannot use these images for commercial purposes.
