98 Mission Trail Imagery

99 Mission Trail Imagery

The images to the left are mosaics of Airborne Data Acquisition and Registration (ADAR) 5500 image frames acquired from a fixed wing aircraft in June of 1998 and May of 1999. They have a ground resolution element of 1 meter, which means that you can see objects that are approximately 1 meter across or greater. Cars and swimming pools are readily apparent. The ADAR digital cameras capture electromagnetic radiation in blue, green, red, and near-infrared wavebands. The near-infrared waveband is just outside of the visible range, and provides a lot of information about vegetation condition. The image frames were georeferenced using a 3 foot resolution digital orthophotographic image as a base map.
