Imagery was captured for the ‘BOPLASS Ltd’ by AAM NZ Limited, 6 Ossian St, NAPIER, New Zealand.
Data comprises: •2,623 ortho-rectified RGB GeoTIFF images in NZTM projection, tiled into the LINZ Standard 1:2,000 tile layout •Tile layout in NZTM projection containing relevant information.
The supplied imagery is in terms of New Zealand Transverse Mercator (NZTM) map projection. The products are tiled into NZTopo50 1:2,000 tiles. Please refer to the supplied tile layout shape file for specific details, naming conventions, etc.
Imagery supplied as 25cm pixel resolution (0.25m GSD), 3-band (RGB) uncompressed GeoTIFF. The final spatial accuracy is ±0.5 m @ 90% confidence level.
Index tiles for this dataset are available as layer [Bay of Plenty 0.25m Rural Aerial Photos Index Tiles (2015-17)](http://data.linz.govt.nz/layer/88101)
Project AAM was engaged by BOPLASS Ltd to acquire aerial photography and create 0.25m GSD orthophotography over selected sites in the Bay of Plenty Region. Total project area ~3625 sq km, This project was flown in the 2015-16 and 2016-17 flying seasons. The aerial photography was acquired between 03 March 2016 and 10 February 2017.
This dataset was produced to meet the project spatial accuracy specification of +/-0.5m. This dataset is supplied on NZTM map projection and Moturiki 1953 vertical datum.
Ground Support: GPS base station support was sourced from continuously operating reference stations in and around the project area. Existing and new ground control points were field surveyed by Opus International Consultants.
Tidal Constraints: Within 2 hours of low tide (harbor, coastal, tidal areas) Minimum Sun Angle: 35 degrees
