Aerial Photo 1995 Color Infrared 1-meter


The Aerial Photo 1995 Color Infrared 1-meter imagery originated from aerial photos captured from planes using large format film-based cameras. The photos were printed at high resolution, scanned and geo-referenced. The geo-referencing process included compensation for sensor orientation and ground elevation. The resulting images are Digital Orthophoto Quarter Quads (DOQQs).

According the USGS:

Color infrared (CIR), or false color, film is sensitive to green and red in the visible portion of spectrum of light and extends into the near-infrared region of the spectrum. Vegetation is distinctly red to magenta in CIR images because vegetation is highly reflective in the near-infrared portion of the spectrum.

The color-infrared DOQs were produced to create spatially accurate aerial photo images that could be used for mapping a variety of features such as land cover, hydrography, agricultural features and urban features.
