1996 Half foot pixel, ortho rectified images


These digital ortho photos were flown in June of 1996.  Half foot pixel photography means that each 6" x 6" on the ground is represented by one dot on the photo image. Therefore, an average person standing would be composed of about eight dots.  The images are tiled by section and will cover 80% of the county within the next two years. The areas that will not be covered by this flight are Capital forest, Fort Lewis and the forest lands of the southeast portion of the county. These areas will have 2 foot pixel photography completed in 1998.

The accuracy for these images is within 2 feet of its true location.
