"The State of Indiana's goal is to develop and/or update certain geospatial data sets for use by state government agencies, other levels of government, academia, and the general public, and to provide these data sets for inclusion to the IndianaMap. The IndianaMap is a resource for geographic information technology users inside Indiana and beyond. The IndianaMap is an initiative of the Indiana Geographic Information Council, Inc. (IGIC), Indiana's statewide GIS coordination council. Data from this project forms the foundation of the base map, and were developed primarily to support multi-use applications, including homeland security, emergency management, economic development, and the business of government. Funds for the statewide orthophotography program come from state agencies, local governments, and grants." 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.
