1998 - 2001 Illinois Digital Orthophoto Quadrangle (DOQ) Data
Illinois National Aerial Photography Program (NAPP) Digital Orthophotography quarter Quadrangle (DOQ) data have been created for 102 counties in the Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinate system with a NAD83 datum. Data were created using USGS NAPP specifications using black and white film during the leaf-off periods of spring, 1998, 1998, 2000, and 2001 at a 1 meter by 1 meter resolution.

Data Distribution: Compressed Data
Data files are offered as LizardTech's MrSID (first generation) .sid files; file processing included image enhancement using PCI. Target compression ration was 15:1 one compressed file is roughly 3 megabytes in size.
A statewide collection of 1998 - 2001 NAPP data requires about 11.5 Gigabytes of storage space. We do not plan to distribute compressed data files by any other means (cd-rom, zip drives, portable drives, ftp download, etc).
- Illinois 1998 - 2001 DOQ data are available free-of-charge via:
- a list of counties for data download, or
- a map of counties for data download, or
- an interactive map for data download and viewing.
How to use the map.
- doqmeta.zip contains:
- doqgenrl.html, a generic .html metadata file
- doqindex.dbf, a DOQ-specific .dbf table of attribute
- readmedoq.htm, a corresponding .htm file outlining the dbf
- Files are named by USGS index number.
- Data meet USGS National Map Accuracy Standards (NMAS) for aerial photography
at 1:12,000; Map applications up to 1:4,800 can be supported, but NMAS are not maintained at that scale.
