GRANIT Metadata for 1974 Digital Orthophoto Mosaic - 1:20,000-Scale - Rockingham County, New Hampshire

Title: 1974 Digital Orthophoto Mosaic - 1:20,000-Scale - Rockingham County, New Hampshire
Time Period of Content: 03/20/1974 - 10/24/1974 Initial Publication Date: 01/2004
Originator: Complex Systems Research Center, University of New Hampshire
Abstract:
This data set is a countywide mosaic of 1:20,000-scale, black & white aerial photos. It was developed by scanning and orthorectifying 484 individual photographs, and combining a subset of the resulting digital images into the mosaic. The final orthophoto mosaic combines the image characteristics of the source photographs with the geometric qualities of a map. In addition to the hardcopy photos, the primary data sources used in the photo orthorectification included 1998 1:12,000-scale Digital Orthophoto Quarterquads (DOQS) and 30-meter Digital Elevation Models (DEMs). The mosaic is provided in IMAGINE (*.img/.ige) format. A MrSID (*.sid) version of the mosaic is also available, but image quality may be poorer due to the compression applied. The 484 individual orthophotos, in .tif format, are also available. The normal orientation of the data is by lines (rows) and samples (columns). Each line contains a series of pixels ordered from west to east with the order of the lines from north to south. The radiometric image brightness values are stored as 256 gray levels ranging from 0 to 255. Note that sections of this metadata record, in particular the Data Quality section, describe the processing performed on the individual photos used to generate the mosaic.
