NOAA coastal Connecticut true color RGB orthorectified mosaic image tiles, Connecticut, 2004 (NODC Accession 0086893)

browse graphicPreview graphic
The NOAA Coastal Services Center purchased digital ADS40 imagery and digital elevation models of the Connecticut coastline in 2004. The Coastal Connecticut project area is comprised of approximately 930 square miles. A total of 244 orthos (122 natural color and 122 color infrared) were produced to cover this area. Aerial imagery was collected in panchromatic, Red, Green, Blue and Near Infrared which yielded a natural color and false color infrared version of the completed digital orthophotography. Imagery was collected at an approximate altitude of 15,750 feet above mean terrain. These data are the infrared orthoimagery in Geotiff format with associated browse graphics and metadata. Infrared (IR) orthoimagery associated with these data are archived at the NODC under accession 0086838.

Supplemental Information
These data were created to support a research investigation to identify and map invasive Phragmites australis. The data are part of the US government provided resources for a grant to the University of Connecticut. A secondary purpose was to provide a sample dataset to examine the applicability of digital aerial imagery for general purpose coastal management.

The digital imagery mission was composed of a total of 2 lifts. Imagery was obtained at an altitude of 15,750 feet above mean terrain. The mission was flown with a Leica ADS40 digital camera with ABGPS and IMU.

The bounding coordinates provided within the Spatial Domain section of the included metadata section represent a rectangle covering the total area in which the project is located. The actual project boundary located within this area is comprised of areas delimited by areas along
the coast of the state of Connecticut.

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.
