Aerial Photo Latest

Abstract

The Aerial Photo Latest data set refers to the latest aerials available from state and local government in Florida. The year of the aerials vary by county. Every county is updated at a minimum every 3 years.

One foot resolution has been the standard since 2005. In 2016, six inch resolution aerials became the new standard.

All counties are flown with digital sensors. Some are 3-band true color and other add a 4th band for color-infrared. This data set only includes true color aerials.

Purpose

Florida Property Appraisers are required to fly high-resolution aerial photography once every three years to assist with property assessment. The Florida Department of Transportation, Florida Department of Revenue, as well as other state and local governments have all partnered together to agree on technical specifications and share costs for acquiring the aerials.
