U.S. Geological Survey, 2008, USGS High Resolution Orthoimagery for Richmond County, Georgia: 17SMS170840_200703_0x1500m_CL_1: U.S. Geological Survey: Sioux Falls, SD,,,


"This metadata record describes the digital ortho imagery produced by Kucera for City of Augusta and wider Richmond County, GA in [] of 2007. This 200 scale imagery is comprised of natural color orthophotography with a GSD (Ground Sample Distance) of 0.5'. Imagery was collected with the Leica ADS40 digital sensor and processed with Leica GPro software."An orthoimage is remotely sensed image data in which displacement of features in the image caused by terrain relief and sensor orientation have been mathematically removed. Orthoimagery combines the image characteristics of a photograph with the geometric qualities of a map. There is no image overlap between adjacent files.Data received at Earth Resources Observation and Science Center [...]

"A digital orthophoto is a geometrically accurate photographic record of landscape conditions at the time of the corresponding aerial photography. As such, the digital orthophoto is useful for a variety of applications, such as environmental monitoring, facility engineering/maintenance, city/county planning, property line review, etc. The digital orthophoto can be used alone or as a raster basemap for corresponding vector line mapping."
