Dataset Basics


Steuben County selected Pinnacle Mapping Technologies, Inc. as the acquisition vendor for their spring 2009, high-resolution orthophotography project. This dataset covers all of Steuben County. Pinnacle flew Steuben County on April 4th and 12th, 2009, using a new Digital Surface Model (DSM) created to support orthorectification of the raw imagery captured with the DIMAC camera system. For project consistency all data was delivered in the Indiana(East) State Plane Coordinate System, in US Survey Feet.

The Steuben County GIS Website provides online interactive viewing of the imagery.
