Summary

"The dataset consists of tiled orthogonal imagery produced from nadir images captured by Pictometry International between May 13th, 2010 to May 28th 2011. Automatic aerial triangulation (AAT) was performed. The triangulated frames were rectified to a LiDAR derived DEM. Mosaicing was performed using an automatic seaming algorithm and manually edited to eliminate seams through elevated features where possible. NOTE: As stipulated prior to production of ortho-imagery, source frames from an existing imagery collection were to be utilized. As such, the imagery may contain long shadows, haziness, and cloud shadows. Pictometry has corrected for this where possible and has made every effort to bring the final dataset into compliance with USGS [...]

Purpose

"Orthogonal image mosaic to support the needs of Dewberry & Davis LLC. Other uses expected." A digital orthoimage is a geometrically accurate photographic record of landscape conditions at the time of the corresponding aerial photography. As such, High Resolution Orthoimagery is useful for a variety of applications, such as environmental monitoring, facility engineering/maintenance, city/county planning, property line review, etc. The digital orthoimage can be used alone or as a raster basemap for corresponding vector line mapping. The detailed focus of High Resolution Orthoimagery provides emergency responders critical information in determining the best evacuation routes, alternative routes and safe access to aid. High Resolution Orthoimagery assists law enforcement personnel in determining the best locations to place surveillance cameras in high-traffic urban areas and popular attractions. The data assists Federal, State and local emergency responders in planning for homeland security efforts. This data also supports The National Map.
