Title: 2014 Digital Aerial Orthoimagery of Wyandotte County, KS
Publication_Place: Kansas City, MO
Publisher: Mid America Regional Council
2014 digital aerial orthoimagery in 4-band (RGB and IR) format at 0.5’ pixel resolution of Wyandotte County, KS. Complete coverage of County is provided in ¼ section-based tiles. Tiles are stitched together seamlessly, with some overlap. Wyandotte County imagery was flown over several days in March 2014. Pushbroom acquisition technology was used (and this created in some areas noticeable building ‘tilt’ and some stretching artifacts in moving vehicles captured by the sensor). A Leica ADS80 SH82 Digital Camera system including an inertial measuring unit (IMU) and a dual frequency airborne GPS receiver was used for the digital image acquisition. Imagery acquisition was performed March 13, 2014 thru March 20, 2014 at 4800 feet AMT (above mean terrain), with 30 percent sidelap between the flight lines. Ground control survey was provided by Mid America Regional Council and David Mason and Associates. Digital orthophotos in 8-bit 4-band GeoTIFF format were produced with a resolution of 0.5 foot utilizing the ADS80 SH82 imagery and client provided LiDAR DEM. This image data is the result of private and government entities working together under the guidance of Mid America Regional Council GIS Division. Fugro Geospatial, Inc. acquired Digital Imagery with sensor Leica Geosystems ADS80 SH82 for areas of the Kansas City Metropolitan Regional Aerial Photography project area March 13, 2014 - April 13, 2014. The project encompassed an area of approximately 5,253 square miles. The project area consists of all or part of Cass, Jackson, Clay, Platte, Buchanan, and Andrew Counties in Missouri, and Miami, Johnson, Wyandotte, Leavenworth, Jefferson, and Shawnee Counties in Kansas.
Purpose: The orthophotos will be used for GIS and planning.

Native RGB and IR values were collected using a greater than 12-bit range of colors. The histogram of these native ranges was stretched, based on flight date, to allow for mosaicking the imagery together, and allows for a more even color balance going through Inpho OrthoVista. The streched dyanmic range was utilized throughout the processing to allow for as much back-end manipulation based on client needs. The final data had a color curve applied that mapped the greater dyanmic range to the deliverable 8-bit per band range in the clipping stage. The final data is in 4-band 8-bits per band format.

The orthophotography meets ASPRS Class 1 Accuracy Standards for 1:1200 scale mapping, with a limiting RMSE of 1' in either X or Y directions. The data is generally accurate to 2 pixels, or plus or minus 1 foot. There may be instances that are higher or lower than this generally accuracy.

The Leica GeoSystems XPro software was used for downloading and preparing imagery collected with the ADS80 Airborne Digital Sensor for softcopy photogrammetric use. The raw image was download in the field with XPro to a portable workstation. This enabled a quick look at image quality and coverage. Using the Leica Geosystems IPAS software package the GPS data was differentially processed against a base station. After the differential GPS solution was checked and verified the Leica Geosystems IPAS program was used to compute an integrated GPS/IMU navigation solution at one-second intervals. Using the GPS/IMU trajectory computed by the Leica Geosystems IPAS software and the camera calibration, XPro computed a full x,y,z, omega,phi,kappa exterior orientation of each scan line. Using the orientation data file produced the L0 imagery was resampled. The resampling removes most aircraft motion and provides epipolar geometry imagery for stereo viewing and automated aerotriangulation. A fully automatic aerotriangulation process was performed to minimize the residual errors in the GPS/IMU derived exterior orientations. The aerotriangulation also allowed the introduction of ground control and checkpoints to ensure the accuracy specifications were achieved. Automated aerotriangulation of ADS80 imagery was performed with the Socet Set Automatic Point Measurement (APM) tool. A digital elevation model (DEM) was required for orthophoto production. DEM data was provided by the client, the DEM data was re-formateed to the required data format for XPro Orthophoto Generation processes. Orthophotos were generated utilizing Leica Geosystem XPro software. Orthos strips were created in UTM Zone 15 meters. The ortho strips were brought into InPho Ortho Vista for a global tilting and initial color balance. The initial color balance was done in three blocks of data, and the three blocks of color balanced ortho strips were balanced together by overlapping some strips of data in ajoining blocks. The color balanced orthophoto strips were mosaiced together using proprietary image database and mosaicing software. There were five image database files that were completed in order to maintian efficiency and allow mjultiple editors to work on the image seamline and atrifact removal processing. The databases were edited for seamlines, and other artifacts. After the seamline and atrifact removal process were completed, the data was clipped to a processing orthophoto tile layout for final QC, any errors that were caught in the final QC were edited, and a final clip of the imagery was completed. The imagery was clipped out of the database into the tile layout provided by the client. After the clipping stage, the coordinate system and georeferencing were embedded into the header of the TIFF file. The imagery tiles were QCed and delivered on an External Hard Drive.
