PEMA 2018 0.5-Foot Orthoimagery - Union County Delivery (US Survey Feet); MrSID Mosaic; Union
Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form:remote-sensing image
Description:
Abstract:
       Product: This orthoimagery data set includes 0.5 foot 8-bit 4-band (RGBN) digital orthoimage mosaics in MrSID format (25:1 compression).
       Geographic Extent: 1 county in Pennsylvania, covering approximately 491 total square miles.
       Dataset Description: The PEMA 2018 0.5-Foot Orthoimagery - Union County Delivery (US Survey Feet) project called for the planning, acquisition, processing, and derivative products of imagery data to be collected at a ground sample distance (GSD) of 0.5 foot. Project specifications are based on the American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) standards. The data were developed based on a horizontal projection/datum of NAD 1983 HARN StatePlane Pennsylvania North FIPS 3701 Feet, Foot US. Orthoimagery data were delivered as 8-bit 4-band (RGBN) MrSID mosaics (25:1 compression).
       Ground Conditions: Imagery was collected in spring 2019 and spring 2020, while no snow was on the ground and rivers were at or below normal levels. In order to post process the imagery data to meet task order specifications and meet ASPRS horizontal accuracy guidelines, Quantum Spatial, Inc. utilized a total of 496 ground control points to assess the horizontal accuracy of the data.
Purpose:
These data depict geographic features on the surface of the earth. The dataset was created to current imagery data for Pennsylvania.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Radiometry is verified by visual inspection of the digital orthophoto. Slight systematic radiometric differences may exist between adjacent orthoimage files; these are due primarily to differences in source image capture dates and sun angles along flight lines. These differences can be observed in an image's general lightness or darkness when it is compared to adjacent orthoimage file coverages. Tonal balancing may be performed over a group of images during the mosaicking process which may serve to lighten or darken adjacent images for better color tone matching.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
All GeoTIFF tagged data and image file sizes are validated using commercial GIS software to ensure proper loading before being archived. This validation procedure ensures correct physical format and field values for tagged elements. Seamlines and tile edges are visually inspected. Seamline mismatches are corrected unless the overall displacement is less than one pixel.
Completeness_Report:
Orthoimages are visually inspected for completeness to ensure that no gaps or image misplacements exist within and between adjacent images. These images are derived by mosaicking multiple images to ensure complete coverage. Source imagery is cloud free.

Source_Contribution:
Aerial imagery was acquired using a Leica ADS100 camera with a flight design that included a total of 47 flight lines. Aerial imagery was supplemented with the simultaneous acquisition of airborne GPS/IMU data, which captured the ground coordinate for the nadir point of each photograph. Aerial imagery was exposed at an altitude of 6600 feet above mean terrain.

A compilation of topographic land form elevation datasets developed using in-house LiDAR data and data from the National Elevation Dataset for use in developing digital ortho imagery.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Orthophoto Processing: Utilizing all four bands [blue (B), green (G), red (R), and infrared (IR)] digital orthorectification was performed using bilinear interpolation algorithms resulting in a spatial and radiometric transformation of the digital image from line/sample space into NAD 1983 HARN StatePlane Pennsylvania North FIPS 3701 Feet, Foot US. The interior and exterior orientation parameters from the aerotriangulation process were used to project each pixel into the ground coordinate system, while the ortho grade DEM was used to correct for relief displacement. Radiometric correction software and techniques were used to create orthophoto files that minimize the appearance of image seams and without loss of feature signature. Orthophotos are checked for geometric accuracy, image quality, and are tonally balanced to produce a uniform contrast and tone across the entire project. The individual overlapping orthophoto frames were mosaicked together. The ortho photos meet ASPRS horizontal accuracy standards.

Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
Three band orthoimagery is organized in three color bands or channels which represent the red, green, and blue (RGB) portions of the spectrum. Four band orthoimagery is organized in four color bands or channels which represent the red, green, blue (RGB), and near infrared (IR) portions of the spectrum. Each image pixel is assigned a triplet or quadruplet of numeric values, one for each color band. Numeric values range from 0 to 255.
