Orthophotography of Indiana, (2016):

Shows the IndianaMap cached REST Service (MapServer) of orthophotography for 24 counties in central Indiana, collected during leaf-off conditions in 2016.
It was produced using the original natural-color (4-band) orthophotography, with an established standard resolution of at least 1-foot.
In 2016, seventeen counties chose the standard 1-foot resolution, while seven counties chose to upgrade to imagery with 6-inch resolution:


Project Background:

From 2016 to 2018, the State of Indiana undertook a 3-year program to acquire orthophotography for the entire state of Indiana,
(4-band RGBI, 1-foot resolution, option to buy up to 6-inch or 3-inch). The program divided the state into three acquisition areas:
center-portion - 24 counties (2016), eastern-portion - 39 counties (2017), and western-portion - 29 counties (2018).

NOTE: Due to flooding in 2018, 10 of the scheduled 29 counties in southwest Indiana were unable to be flown/acquired.
The State of Indiana's contract has extended through December 2019 with Woolpert to accomodate the acquisition, processing,
and delivery of these counties (Davies, Dubois, Knox, Martin, Perry, Pike, Posey, Spencer, Vanderburgh, and Warrick Counties).
