This map service depicts imagery collected in response to hurricane Irene. This data was collected by NOAA and the remaining description in this abstract is taken directly from the metadata provided with the data. The imagery posted on this site is of Hurricane Irene. The aerial photography missions were conducted by the NOAA Remote Sensing Division. The images were acquired from a nominal altitude of 5,000 - 7,500 feet, using a Trimble Digital Sensor System (DSS). This imagery was acquired by the NOAA Remote Sensing Division to support NOAA national security and emergency response requirements. This rapid response product was generated for use by emergency managers for visual analysis of damage in the area. It is not intended for mapping, charting or navigation. In addition, it will be used for ongoing research efforts for testing and developing standards for airborne digital imagery. The ground sample distance (GSD) for each pixel is 35 cm. Image file size is between 1 MB and 10 MB. In an effort to acquire imagery in a timely manner after the landfall of the hurricane, clouds may be present in the imagery. To expidite processing required for a rapid response, a single UTM zone was used even if the project area spanned multiple zones. Be advised that the Bounding Coordinates reflect the extents of the images acquired for this event and do not imply full image coverage of the area.
