Abstract: This dataset is a collection of Tiff/Tfw format color orthophotos covering Currituck County, NC. The final dataset is comprised of 523 1" = 200' tiles with 1/2 foot resolution, Natural Color imagery. An orthophoto is remotely sensed image data in which displacement of features in the image caused by terrain relief and sensor orientation have been mathematically removed. Orthophotography combines the image characteristics of a photograph with the geometric qualities of a map. Imagery was acquired for Currituck County, NC at 1/2 foot ground sample distance (GSD) resolution. Flight height maintained during mission was 5,000 feet AGL. The imagery was captured at 12-bit radiometric resolution and converted to 8-bit radiometric resolution during post processing. The imagery was captured with 60% forwardlap and 30% sidelap between all adjacent flight lines. The imagery was obtained and processed by all digital means beginning with data acquisition using a Z/I Imaging Digital Mapping Camera (DMC), serial number DMC01-0044. The orthophotos are available in Tiff/Tfw format. The projected coordinate system is North Carolina, State Plane NAD 83/2007 US Foot, NAVD88.
Purpose: The goal of this project is to provide Currituck County, NC with current digital orthoimagery.
