Description:
Abstract:
This polygon feature class is an index to photographic tiles used to compile one-foot resolution ortho-rectified digital images of the Des Plaines watershed in southeastern Wisconsin and northeastern Illinois. Tile name and bounding coordinates are identified for each polygon.

The spatial reference is geographic coordinates, decimal degrees, NAD83.

Purpose:
The related ortho-images were created as a base for determining flood risk.

These data are appropriate for use in local and regional thematic analysis. The data are not appropriate as a geodetic, legal or engineering base. The data set was not and is not intended as a substitute for surveyed locations, such as can be determined by a registered Public Land Surveyor. Although useful in a GIS as a reference base layer for maps, the data set has no legal basis in the definition of boundaries or property lines.
