Scott County 2014 Aerial Photogrpahy

April 15, 2014 Comments off

Just a quick update on an exciting project for 2014!  Scott County is currently acquiring aerial imagery for 2014 as part of a greater Quad Cities orthophotography consortium. Planes have been in the air the past couple of weeks and should be finishing up soon. The final product will be a 3″ GSD photo (every pixel in the photo represents 3″ on the ground). Our last flight in 2009 was a 5″ GSD product so this will be a noticeable improvement in quality.

If you happen to be out and about and run across some white panels pinned to the ground in either “X” or “T” configurations, you’re looking at our photo-identifiable ground control markers.  Please do not disturb them!  We will remove them after flights are completed.  Here’s a photos of one somewhere in the county:

It takes some time to process the photos after they are collected but the final imagery will be available in the August – October, 2014 time frame. We plan to incorporate the new aerials into our online GIS Web application for easy access.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Scott County GIS Coordinator at (563) 328-4137 or by email at gis@scottcountyiowa.com.
