Abstract:
This map shows the approximate locations of houses and buildings within 0.5 km of the shoreline of Upper Saranac Lake.
Purpose:
This dataset was produced for an EPA funded report titled "The State of Upper Saranac Lake". The map was used to show the increase in shoreline development that has occurred during the last several decades.
Supplemental_Information:
This map was created from aerial photos taken on 30 April 1997 by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation's Division of Aviation using a fixed wing aircraft and a Zeiss LMK-3000 camera that produces a 9-inch negative. The following steps were used to create the map from the aerial photos: 1) Structures were drawn onto mylar from the aerial photos. To minimize distortion, features were only copied from the centers of photos whenever possible. 2) Mylar copies of each photo were registered with a minimum of 4 tics. 3) Features on mylar were digitized using ARC/INFO. 4) Individual coverages of each photo were converted to UTM. A total of 23 individual coverages (photos) were then joined to create a complete map of the shoreline development. Scale: 1:8,000 (estimated from the aerial photos)
