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.

Six inch resolution has been the standard resolution since 2016. One foot resolution was the standard between 2005 and 2015.

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

Purpose

The Florida Department of Revenue (FDOR) is required to provide County Property Appraisers high-resolution aerial photos every three years to help with property assessments. The Florida Departments of Transportation and Revenue work together with other state and local governments to set technical standards and share the costs of acquiring these aerial photos.

Comments

Major tech companies that create aerial maps gather images from local governments across the U.S. to enhance their systems. Many of these companies also contract out to private companies to fly very high resolution aerial photography. This higher-resolution imagery is often used to support "3-D" aerials in dense urban areas. From suburban areas into rural areas, the imagery typically comes from government sources such as these aerials.
