Department of Commerce (DOC), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), National Ocean Service (NOS), National Geodetic Survey (NGS), Remote Sensing Division, 20100330, LA0801 Ortho-rectified Aerial Imagery of Terrebonne and Timbalier Bays Barrier Islands, Louisiana (NODC Accession 0075828): NOAA's Ocean Service, National Geodetic Survey (NGS), Silver Spring, MD.
This is a Raster data set. It contains the following raster data types:
Planar coordinates are encoded using Row and Column
Abscissae (x-coordinates) are specified to the nearest 1.0
Ordinates (y-coordinates) are specified to the nearest 1.0
Planar coordinates are specified in meters
The horizontal datum used is NAD83.
The ellipsoid used is GRS80.
The semi-major axis of the ellipsoid used is 6378137.000000.
The flattening of the ellipsoid used is 1/298.257221.
This data depicts geographic features on the surface of the earth.
Final ortho-mosaic tiles were used to measure visible control points against surveyed coordinates. The accuracy assessment report can be found at
The source imagery of the ortho-rectified mosaic tiles are acquired at a higher resolution images than the 1.0 meter ortho-rectified mosaic tiles product. The extent of image coverage is limited to the acquired flight lines which were planned to to map the shoreline and therefore may not include all areas within the bounding coordinates.
The ortho-rectified tiles are visually inspected for image quality and spot check for gross horizontal positional accuracy blunders.
Are there legal restrictions on access or use of the data?
