2006 Digital Orthoimagery Project Update

March 23, 2006

Ayres Associates has been awarded the contract for the 2006 Digital Orthoimagery Project. The project will yield countywide black and white imagery (6" pixel) within 90 days of acquisition. Acquisition will take place early spring during "leaf off" conditions. 

Survey crews from Ayres Associates will be placing targets throughout Oakland County between March 24, 2006 and April 1, 2006 in support of this project. These targets will be placed in areas that are easily seen from the aircraft so that they will be present in the resulting imagery. Cloth targets in the shape of an ‘X’ will be secured in grassy areas and painted targets will be used on road surfaces. The cloth targets will be removed once the image acquisition is complete, and the painted targets are designed to wear off over time.

For more information on the project, please contact Oakland County Information Technology Service Center at (248) 858-8812 or servicecenter@oakgov.com.
