In an effort to cover more areas that have available imagery that I haven’t mapped yet, I decided to make a couple maps of Jacksonville, Florida. Prior to downloading the Jacksonville imagery I made an attempt to get some imagery of Connecticut because I have yet to map the Constitution State. However, there was only black & white imagery and false color imagery, both of which I don’t like to use.
When preparing to download the Jacksonville imagery I had the choice to download .3 meter imagery from 2004 and 1 foot imagery from 2005. Both equal roughly the same spatial resolution (.3 meters = about 1 foot), but what I discovered after viewing the imagery was that Google is currently using the 2004 imagery. Thus I chose to use the 2005 imagery so that I can add another city where I beat Google to the map.
