Description:
  Abstract:  Digital orthophotography of New Jersey, distributed as a Web Map Service (WMS). There are numerous layers in the service, one displaying the 2007 3 natural color bands, another displaying 2007 3 band false color infrared (near IR). The native data set spatial reference system is State Plane Coordinate System NAD83 Coordinates, U.S. Survey Feet. In most client software, the default spatial reference system of the service will be Geographic Coordinates, WGS84. Several other coordinate systems are supported (see Distribution Information section).Multi-spectral digital orthophotography was produced at a scale of 1:2400 (1" = 200') with a 1 foot pixel resolution for the State of New Jersey totaling approximately 8,162 square miles. The GeoTIFF tiles delivered to the State of New Jersey were then converted to lossless JPEG2000 files, which are used in this service.Aerial photography of the entire State of New Jersey was captured during March-May, 2007. Two flight dates (4-30-07 and 5-3-07 were rejected from the original 2007 flight due to excessive leaf conditions. Spring 2008 re-flights were planned and acquired in three missions dating: April 3rd, 10th, and 15th of 2008. The final orthophotos for parts of Warren, Hunterdon, Sussex, Passaic, Essex, Union, and all of Bergen and Hudson Counties were created utilizing both years of imagery.
  Purpose:  This service was created to provide convenient internet access to 2007 - 2008 orthophotos. It can be used by anyone with internet access and client software that can consume Open Geospatial Consortium compliant Web Map Services (WMS).The data provide aerial survey of the State of New Jersey. Orthophotos serve a variety of purposes, from interim maps to field references for earth science investigations and analysis. The digital orthophoto is useful as a layer of a geographic information system and as a tool for revision of digital line graphs and topographic maps.
  Supplemental Information:  See Distribution Information, Ordering Instructions, for important details on how to use the service in ArcMap and ArcCatalog (ESRI desktop mapping products). For imagery capture dates, see Data Quality section, Source Information for 2007 orthos GeoTIFF.
