Transcript of 2013 Niagara Ortho-Photography Project

A sub-group of GNIAG, the Special Data Acquisition Working Group was tasked with the responsibilities of creating the product specifications, securing funding participants, drafting the request for proposal document, evaluating, and selecting a vendor on behalf of the project participants. The project working group consists of representatives from local Niagara municipalities, Niagara Regional Police Service (NRPS), and the Niagara Region. Before commencing this project, other sources of aerial and satellite imagery available through Google, Bing and other web map sites were investigated to determine whether updated aerial photography was actually needed. The project working group quickly recognized that the images on these sites tend to be dated, lack sufficient detail and did not have the accuracy required for the wide variety of uses identified by potential participants. Participants also encouraged GNIAG to consider a one or two year update cycle for this type of aerial photography primarily because of the rapid changes in parts of the Niagara peninsula. By Jesse Johnson This new imagery acquisition is the first for Niagara since the 2010 South Western Ontario Ortho-Photo project (SWOOP2010) headed up by Land Information Ontario.
The products are scheduled to be delivered in November, 2013, and will be visible on some of the participating organizations’ public internet mapping websites. The Geomatics Niagara Information Advisory Group (GNIAG), an advisory committee formed in 2005 consisting of professionals specializing in geomatics representing government organizations in the Niagara Region, has awarded a contract for the acquisition and supply of high resolution digital aerial photography products to British Columbia-based firm Aeroquest Mapcon Inc. This new imagery acquisition is the first for Niagara since the 2010 South Western Ontario Ortho-Photo project (SWOOP2010) headed up by Land Information Ontario. Up-to-date, high resolution aerial imagery is an important component in many municipal, law enforcement, public safety, infrastructure, and environmental projects and applications. Seven local municipalities, five Niagara hydro utility providers, the Niagara Parks Commission, and the Niagara Region shared in the cost of this project. The products will include ten centimetre resolution colour digital aerial photography, and an updated digital elevation model of the entire Niagara Region.
