"This dataset is one component of a digital orthophoto coverage (DOI) over the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD contract B089 Winterhaven, Fl) area. This dataset is comprised of 4-band stack 32bit (red, green, blue and infrared bands) DOI cells in a Geotiff format, at a 1-foot pixel resolution, based on the District's 5,000' x 5,000' tile system. This dataset was created from source imagery acquired through the Leica ADS40 multispectral scanner from 01/09/2011 through 01/28/2011. The companion dataset to this coverage includes a dataset comprised of the original imagery mosaic lines with dates of imagery acquisition in the ESRI file geodatabase feature class." An orthoimage is remotely sensed image data in which [...]

"The District regularly uses digital orthophotos to support regulatory, land management and acquisition, planning, engineering and habitat restoration projects." 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.
