Dataset Basics

In 2016, the Indiana Geographic Information Office began a 3-year (2016-2018) update project to refresh the orthophotography (RGBI) data for the entire state of Indiana. The state was divided into three general acquisition areas: center (2016), east (2017), and west (2018). These planned areas were modified slightly to account for weather conditions and buy-ups that occurred outside of the planned areas. The State's vendor, Woolpert, acquired 22 counties in 2016, 39 counties in 2017, and 31 counties in 2018.
Cities and counties had the option to buy-up from the standard product of 1 foot resolution, 4-band orthophotography to 6-inch or 3-inch resolution imagery.
For the 2016 acquisition year, the following areas exercised the buy-up option:

For the 2017 acquisition year, the following areas exercised the buy-up option:

For the 2017 acquisition year, the following areas exercised the buy-up option: TBD
