This data is available in the Libraries on 13 CD-ROMs. The entire county was flown at '400 scale. Developed areas were flown at 200' or 100' foot scale, with some overlap. MrSID compressed versions (10:1) will be available as individual files and as mosaics in the near future. Data availability by image resolution is shown below:
