The orthophotos are tiled to correspond to the tax map grid layout. The scale of each ortho image is1:4800, 5000x5000 pixel resolution. Resampled versions (resampled to 1 mb in file size from 25 mb Format) are downloadable as TIFFs by tax map grid cell.

Additional flights were done in early 2001. black & white photography was done at 200' scale and color photography at 400' scale. Color imagery may be available as early as Sept. 2001.
