Aerial Services is now offering special four-band orthophotography with 1.25-feet (0.38-meter) ground sampling distance (GSD) for eight major Iowa & Minnesota cities. The color leaf-on imagery, acquired in the summer of 2010 from approximately 20,000 feet above ground level, also includes the color infrared band that is useful for a variety of land-use classification activities.  Horizontal accuracy is assured to be less than or equal to 6-meters, but in many cases tested better.
