The issue with routes is mentioned here http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Massachusetts#Fixing_One_Way_Roads
That is a one question to ask, what kind of format is best to make it available in, currently we have the 2010 data for roads on our website http://www.eot.state.ma.us/default.asp?pgid=content/plan02&sid=about is .gdb .mdb and shapefile, but we can make up to date data available in other formats. 

The oblique and ortho data is in .psi and .pmi formats respectively, which is a type of .jfif file that the program pictometry uses, for those I was more looking for some information for how we should go about making those available.
