Dataset Basics


Hamilton County acquired imagery during April, 2008, leaf-off, cloudless conditions at a resolution of 6-inch. The data cover the entire land area of Hamilton County, Indiana, or 434 square miles. The county's vendor, Woolpert, delivered tiles, consisting of 2500'x 2500' uncompressed 24-bit natural color TIFF files. Accuracy is +/- 3.33 feet. The entire perimeter of the county is buffered by at least 2,000 feet. Adjacent flight lines overlap by a minimum of 30 percent. Imagery was collected with the Leica ADS40 digital pushbroom sensor. The file naming convention is as follows: xxxyyyy where xxx and yyyy represent the easting and northing coordinates (respectively) in state plane feet, divided by 1000, of the tile origin (the bottom-left pixel). TIFF files are approximately 83 MB in size. Ownership of the data products resides with Hamilton County.
