Coordinated Imagery Program
The Victorian Coordinated Imagery Program's (CIP) mission is to develop an efficient and effective service and cost sharing model for the acquisition of spatial imagery and elevation products for the State of Victoria and the Program Purchase Partners.
The CIP coordinates the purchase of aerial imagery and elevation products across Victoria for a range of government and non-government organisations. It is designed to facilitate your imagery needs, reduce costs, avoid duplication and to contract manage your project. It streamlines the acquisition, storage and access to aerial images and elevation products for you.
Instead of having to purchase images for a specific purpose, Purchase Partners can share images and use them again for a range of different purposes, from urban growth area planning, property searches and asset management, through to tracking native vegetation.
