Abstract

Swimming Pools. The dataset contains polygons representing planimetric grates created as part of the DC Geographic Information System (DC GIS) for the D.C. Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO). These features were originally captured in 1999 and updated in 2005 and 2008.

The following planimetric layers were updated using 2008 imagery - Grates (GratePt) - Bollards (BollardPt) - Stairs (StairPly) - Pools (SwmPoolPly). All DC GIS data is stored and exported in Maryland State Plane coordinates NAD 83 meters.

Lineage / Sources

  • Aerial Photography - 2008
    filmstrip, New aerial photography was collected in the Spring of 2008 to support new orthoimagery and planimetric updates. This aerial photography was composed of approximately 52 flight lines and a total of 1552. The mission was flown with one Vecxel Ultracam X camera and collected ABGPS and IMU for each exposure.
