Dataset Basics

Due to an early spring, the 2005 IndianaMap Orthophotography Project contains images with leaf-on conditions. To correct this, EarthData reflew the areas with heavy leaves. The 2006 orthophotography is not a state-wide dataset but contains imagery and elevation for those counties that were effected by the leaf-on conditions during 2005. This data set contains Color-Infrared (CIR) Digital Ortho Quarter Quads (DOQQ) tiles for the State of Indiana.

The Indiana 2006 digital CIR orthophotography reflight was collected during February and March leaf-off conditions at a minimum resolution of 1-meter. The following counties have select areas involved in reflights: Adams, Brown, Clark, Crawford, Daviess, Greene, Harrison, Hendricks, Huntington, Jackson, Jasper, Lawrence, Morgan, Newton, Noble, Orange, Owen, Pike, Porter, Posey, Spencer, St. Joseph, Wabash, Warrick, Wells, White, Dubois, Elkhart, Floyd, Kosciusko, Lake, Marion, Monroe, Perry, Steuben, Tippecanoe, and Vanderburgh. EarthData reflew Dubois and Perry Counties in their entirety.
