Pennsylvania DCNR Makes Aerial Images Available to Help Public Assess Flood Damage

HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 23, 2011 — (PRNewswire) — The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is making aerial images collected between December 2009 and April 2010 available to the public for use in assessing flood damage resulting from Tropical Storm Lee.

The imagery covers Bradford, Centre, Clinton, Lycoming, Sullivan, Susquehanna, and Wyoming counties.

"As municipalities and residents attempt to return to normal, it's helpful to know what an area looked like before it was flooded to determine the amount of damage," Pennsylvania State Geologist George Love said. "This high-resolution aerial photography can provide detailed information about how impacted areas looked before the waters rose."

The photographs will be most useful to governments and private sector contractors and consultants. They are available as an imagery service and as a download from the Pennsylvania Spatial Data Access website at www.pasda.psu.edu/ (choose PAMAP 2010 Imagery Service Now Available).

The images were acquired by DCNR from i-cubed ( www.i3.com), an enterprise geospatial information company, which agreed to waive a restriction that would have limited the data to governmental-use only until next June.

DCNR's Bureau of Topographic and Geologic Survey is responsible for the statewide digital base map, known as PAMAP, in partnership with other state agencies, counties, the federal government and other government entities.  

PAMAP provides access to road, elevation, boundaries, hydrography and other data and aerial photography at a scale 10 times better than what was previously available through existing topographic maps.
