Abstract: This project shows U.S.D.A. aerial imagery of Leon County, FL. The imagery was taken in May, 1941. The images were obtained from the University of Florida Digital Collections: George A. Smathers Libraries. http://ufdc.ufl.edu/aerials/all The images were cropped and processed in graphics software and georeferenced in ArcGIS.

FGDC and ESRI Metadata:

Metadata elements shown with blue text are defined in the Federal Geographic Data Committee's (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM). Elements shown with a green asterisk (*) will be automatically updated by ArcCatalog. ArcCatalog adds hints indicating which FGDC elements are mandatory; these are shown with gray text.

Purpose:
This shows historical imagery (1941) of Leon County, FL. TLCGIS regularly uses digital orthophotos and planimetric/hydrographic/topographic data to support regulatory functions, land management and acquisition, planning, engineering and habitat restoration projects. However, this imagery is not ortho-rectified. These images are digital scans of old aerial photographs. We georeferenced the images but we can make no claims as far as accuracy, uniformity of scale or lack of distortion.
