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


The Fly Dane Partnership will be undertaking a 2014 orthophotography project. A project planning workgroup was formed with representation from the county and regional Fly Dane partners. This project will mark a change in the acquisition timeline and that the partnership is moving from a 5 year cycle to a 3 year cycle. This proposal was reviewed by the partnership and approved by the Dane County Land Information Council.
