Historic Aerial Indexes – Processing, Setup and Dissemination
Authors: Nathan Pugh, Joan Biediger, Louise Mathews, Zack Adkins, David Davis
This presentation will discuss the process the Aerial Photography Field Office (APFO) of the Farm Service Agency went through to scan and georeference Historical Aerial Indexes. Additional products created include linework and associated attribution. Aerial Indexes are hi-resolution pictures taken of at least several individual aerial photos overlaid upon each other. APFO has thousands of printed Aerial Indexes and needed a process to create digital copies and create value added data.
