DIGITAL ORTHOPHOTO QUADRANGLES.
Series of 102 digital orthophoto quadrangles and 8 digital orthophoto quarter-quadrangles covering the Chesapeake Bay area of Maryland, including the tidal reaches of the major bay tributaries. The source documents—black and white Kodak paper prints— were produced by the U.S. Geological Survey from 1988-1989 National Aerial Photography Program (NAPP) photography and comply with National Map Accuracy Standards at 1:24,000. Rasters were produced by scanning the paper prints at 1000 dots/inch (dpi) and down-sampling to 250 dpi (ground pixel size = 8×8 ft.). Color depth is 8 bits (256 gray levels). Map collars were excluded from the scan; place names, neat lines and Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) grid lines are an inextricable part of the image. Files are approximately 30 megabytes in size and are available on CD-ROM, erasable optical disk, or, for small orders ( 5 quads), via the Internet. Native format is MicroImages .RVC; .TIFF format is also available. Detailed documentation, compliant with federal metadata standards, is transferred in ASCII format with the files. Purchasers are required to sign a licensing agreement.
