Description:
Abstract:
These files contain 2015 digital Ortho-imagery of Schuyler County, New York. Image pixel size is 0.5' GSD. Image type is 4-band, RGB & NIR. Image horizontal accuracy is within 4' at the 95% confidence level (NSSDA). Each file contains an image covering 2000 ft. by 3000 ft. on the ground.
Purpose:
This digital Selective True Ortho-imagery can serve a variety of purposes, from general planning to field reference for spatial analysis to a tool for revision of vector maps. It can also serve as a reference layer for GIS.

Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report:
The dataset contains raster images or digital ortho images so the logical consistency report is not applicable. The file naming convention was supplied by New York State. When the ortho tiles were created the file names were restricted to a numeric value representing the lower left corner of the ortho tile.
Completeness_Report:
The project consisted of 1,807 final tiles.

Process_Description:
This dataset contains orthoimagery of Schuyler County New York. This dataset was created as part of the contract to provide new natural color digital aerial imagery with airborne GPS-IMU control and ground surveyed control to develop and support 4 band (RGBIR) 8 bit orthos for portions of New York State. Based on the NYSDOP-2013-RFP leaf-off 6-inch imagery was to be captured for Schuyler County.  
Keystone Aerial Surveys of Philadelphia, PA was chosen as the vendor to capture the aerial imagery. Axis and Keystone planned the flight mission with a target GSD of .5' with an endlap of 60% and a sidelap of 30%. The Ultracam Falcon Prime digital mapping camera (UCFp) coupled with flight navigation systems and airborne GPS and inertial measurement units were flown at an approximate altitude of 9,200' above mean ground elevation. The image footprint of the Falcon Prime yields a image footprint size of 17,310 x 11,310 pixels, thereby capturing an average image footprint of 8,655' wide by 5,655' inline for a six inch pixel resolution. A total of 29 flight lines and 1,366 exposures were captured for this mission on April 15, 2015. For more information regarding this flight mission please refer to the NY 2015 6 inch aerotriangulation report submitted to the NYS Office of Information Technology Services, GIS Program Office.
Aerotriangulation for this photo mission was performed using Microsoft UltraMap AT software. Automatic tie point measurements were formulated and independent ground control points and airborne GPS were introduced to further refine the data. Please see the final aerotriangulation and survey reports submitted to the NYS Office of Information Technology Services, GIS Program Office for additional information on the aerotriangulation and ground control collection.
Once a suitable aerotriangulation solution was obtained the UltraMap Ortho module was used to produce the orthorectified imagery, terrain model, and seamlines. This module produces digital orthophotos using a pixel based matching algorithm which is derived from the Digital Terrain Model (DTM) and radiometrically balanced proprietary imagery. The orthorectified images are then mosaicked together into the final tiles to produce a very accurate and precise orthophoto. The State of New York provided Axis a tile grid shapefile with 1,807 tiles with a dimension of 2,000’ by 3,000’. Once the tiles were output they were then inspected in a final QA/QC process for overall image quality with all undesirable artifacts and errors corrected before delivery. Final edits to the seamlines and terrain model files were also performed. Once the tiles were corrected a final adjustment to the brightness and contrast was applied. In addition, the tiles were converted to JP2/J2W format at a 10:1 compression ratio with ESRI AUX and MapInfo TAB files.
