Description:
Abstract:
Index of USGS quarter-quadrangles (3.75 minute) covering Pennsylvania.  The polygons are attributed with information pertaining to the USGS/PaGS Digital Orthophoto Quarter-Quad (DOQQ) imagery collection available for download through PASDA.  Including dates of image acquisition for the complete NAPP II imagery collection (1993-1995) and imagery available as of April 2003 from the NAPP III collection (1999- ).
Purpose:
Information and management of PASDA collection.

Process_Description:
Quarterquads shapefile was imported to Geodatabase format using ArcCatalog software (8.2).  Flight date information was obtained from DOQQ .hdr files where available or through USGS EarthExplorer when necessary.  Through a series of queries and joins performed using MS-Access 2000, this information was appended to the attribute tables
