Fly Dane

Fly Dane is a regional partnership that allows local agencies to pool their resources for periodic updates of orthophotography, elevation, and planimetric data.


Project Description


In the spring of 2000, the Dane County Land Information Office coordinated the acquestion of Census year digital aerial photography or orthophotography, across Dane County. Fly Dane 2000 was a unique project that built on a partnership of local municaplities, county departments, stqte and federal agencies, and utility companies.

Fly Dane 2000 produced higher resolution digital imagery and a more detailed Digital Terrain Model (DTM). Other poject compnonents included ehancements to the county survey control network, the development of a survey control database, and the development of other ortho derived products such as hydrographic network and road centerlines.

The project resulted in a long term voluntary partnership that continues to allow participants to pool their resources for futre orthophotography product updates.
