Data Quality 

Scope of quality information
Resource level  dataset




Data quality report - Conceptual consistency
Measure description
All TIFF files are checked for file size. All TFW files are checked for rounding errors. Image names are checked against the project tile grid.





Data quality report - Completeness omission
Measure description
All orthoimagery is visually inspected for completeness to ensure that no gaps, hard seam lines, or shifting has occurred. All images are clipped to the tile extent and radiometrically balanced with surrounding images. All images are cloud free and source photography is flown leaf-off.





Data quality report - Quantitative attribute accuracy
Measure description
Image color values may deviate from color values of the original imagery due to image value interpolation during the rectification process and during quality control processing of the imagery. Radiometry is verified by visual inspection of the ortho image.





Data quality report - Absolute external positional accuracy
Dimension horizontal


Measure description
This data set was tested to meet ASPRS Positional Accuracy Standards for Digital Geospatial Data (2014) for a 7.3cm RMSEx / RMSEy Horizontal Accuracy Class which equates to Positional Horizontal Accuracy = +/- 12.6cm at a 95% confidence level.



Quantitative test results
Value 0.126


Evaluation method
RMSEx = 7.3cm which equates to Positional Horizontal Accuracy - 12.6cm (0.126m) at the 95% confidence level





Data quality report - Absolute external positional accuracy
Dimension vertical


Measure description
This data set was tested to meet ASPRS Positional Accuracy Standard for Digital Geospatial Data (2014) for a 10.0-cm RMSEz Vertical Accuracy Class. Actual NVA accuracy was found to be RMSEz = 3.512cm, equating to +/- 6.884cm at the 95% confidence level.





Lineage 

Process step
When the process occurred 2017-06-16
Description
Using a TAC 80 camera sensor the digital orthophotography was created by rectifying the digital aerial photography to the DTM data and GPS-survey results using Cubic Convolution methodology. The orthophotography was mosaicked and radiometrically balanced to ensure tonal consistency. The final pixel resolution was provided in 0.5 foot, 1 foot, 2 foot, 4 foot and 8 foot resolutions. Said orthophotography meets National Map Accuracy Standards.
