Description:
Abstract: 1936 Aerial Photographic Survey. Photographs cover the entire county. Photos were taken in the Spring of 1936. Original photos are black and white, roughly 2 feet x 3 feet in size and on a fabric medium. The original 50 photos were scanned as tiff images and georeferenced.
Purpose: These photos were digitally reproduced to be used for historical comparisons and analysis. The image name matches the number that is assigned on the 1936 aerial photo index page. The images are grouped into 8 zip files. Each zip file contains a a copy of this metadata document and a raster catalog called 1936_catalog.dbf that can be used in ArcGIS for viewing the aerial photos. The raster catalog must be in the same directory as the photos in order to work properly. The zip files are named Northwest Part 1 & 2, Northeast Part 1 & 2, Southwest Part 1 & 2, Southeast Part 1 & 2. Northwest Part 1 contains images and tiff world files named: 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9. Northwest Part 2 contains images and tiff world files named: 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23. Northeast Part 1 contains images and tiff world files named: 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 13. Northeast Part 2 contains images and tiff world files named: 17, 18, 19, 20, 24, 25, 26. Southwest Part 1 contains images and tiff world files named: 27, 28, 29, 33, 34, 35, 39. Southwest Part 2 contains images and tiff world files named: 40, 41, 42, 46, 47, 48, 49. Southeast Part 1 contains images and tiff world files named: 30, 31, 32, 36. Southeast Part 2 contains images and tiff world files named: 37, 38, 43, 44, 45.
Supplemental_Information: These are digital images made from fabric medium hard copies. The bounding coordinates referenced in this metadata documents are for the overall extent of all the mosaiced images, not the individual images. Note: Users of the tiff images in ArcGIS version 9.2 and later may experience an error message that indicates the images don't have any spatial reference information. This can be resolved by closing any instances of ArcMap, then selecting an image in ArcCatalog, right-clicking and selecting "Properties." In the Spatial Reference section of the dialogue box use the Edit button to define the spatial reference as New York State Plane East NAD83. This will embed the spatial reference information into the tiff file's header.
