U.S. Geological Survey, 2008, USGS High Resolution Orthoimagery for the Tulsa, Oklahoma Urban Area Zone15: 15STA430125_200703_0x3000m_CL_1: U.S. Geological Survey: Sioux Falls, SD,,,


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. The design accuracy is estimated not to exceed 10-meters.Data received at Earth Resources Observation and Science Center (EROS) were verified as:Projection: NAD_1983_UTM_Zone_15NResolution: 0.3000 mType: Natural Colorand resampled to align to the U.S. National Grid (USNG). The naming convention is based on the U.S. National Grid (USNG), taking the coordinates of the SW corner of the orthoimage. The metadata were imported and updated for display through The National [...]

These data have been created as a result of the need for having geospatial data immediately available and easily accessible in order to provide geographic reference for Federal, State, and local emergency responders, as well as for homeland security efforts. Orthoimages also serve a variety of purposes, from interim maps to field references for earth science investigations and analysis. The digital orthoimage is useful as a layer of a geographic information system. These data can be used to provide reference information for Web browsers and for map applications at a scale of 1:100,000 or smaller. Larger scale orthoimagery such as digital orthophoto quadrangles will be more accurate, but often at the expense of timely updates.
