stract:"This image tile is part of an orthophotography project covering contiguous areas of interest in and adjacent to the jurisdictional boundary of the Denver Region Council of Governments (DRCOG) in central Colorado. The project is known as the Denver Region Aerial Photography Project (DRAPP) begun in 2010 and completed in the spring of 2011. The tiles are images which depict color digital aerial photographs acquired in the spring of 2010 during leaf-off conditions and in early summer of 2010 over mountainous areas to minimize snow cover. Lens and terrain distortion have been removed and tonal differences between adjacent images have been minimized to form a mosaic of the entire project area. The project area includes The Denver [...]

"The orthophotography is useful as a layer in a Geographic Information System (GIS) and is intended to aid in planning, digital map revision, and spatial analysis. It is not intended to furnish measurements accurate enough for engineering design work." A digital orthoimage is a geometrically accurate photographic record of landscape conditions at the time of the corresponding aerial photography. As such, High Resolution Orthoimagery is useful for a variety of applications, such as environmental monitoring, facility engineering/maintenance, city/county planning, property line review, etc. The digital orthoimage can be used alone or as a raster basemap for corresponding vector line mapping. The detailed focus of High Resolution Orthoimagery provides emergency responders critical information in determining the best evacuation routes, alternative routes and safe access to aid. High Resolution Orthoimagery assists law enforcement personnel in determining the best locations to place surveillance cameras in high-traffic urban areas and popular attractions. The data assists Federal, State and local emergency responders in planning for homeland security efforts. This data also supports The National Map.
