Here begins the slew of maps of NYC…
At .60m per pixel, the size of NYC imagery allows for me to download some very large plots of land without creating a massive files. The biggest drawback is that at .60m it only shows about 1/4 the detail of most of the imagery I’ve been using (.30m for DC). This means that its important to preserve the .60m when making my maps, otherwise you won’t be able to see much detail on the ground. After downloading the imagery around Central Park I realized that I needed to break the park up into two sections to preserve the detail. Otherwise I would have created a massively large source tile. Thus I made a north tile and a south tile and honestly, I am glad I did! I think they all turned out perfect!
