  • 1. Hawaii and Pacific Basin Update USDA-NRCS March 2008 Hawaii Geographic Information Coordinating Council Anthony Kimmet GIS Analyst/Cartographer National Cartography and Geospatial Center
  • 2. Topics • USDA Status of Orthoimagery - Hawaii - Pacific Basin • Future Orthoimagery Priorities • Orthoimagery Distribution/License Issues • Imagery for the Nation
  • 3. TOTAL DOQQs: 496 100% FLOWN: 463 93% ACCEPTED: 350 71% NOT FLOWN: 33 7% UNPROCESSED: 113 22% Final Status
  • 4. Hawaii Islands Orthoimagery Status, October 2007 USDA has ordered DG - QuickBird Four Band Orthoimagery for the Molokai, Lanai, Kahoolawe, Maui, Molokini Crater and Hawaii Contracted NRCS has already acquired complete island 2007 Orthoimagery (QB, .6m) for Niihau and Kauai in Natural Color and CIR. The NCGC received 1 ft. Orthoimagery for Oahu. The mosaics are complete and will be on the Gateway soon. FSA-APFO will be offered these Contracted datasets. 2006 Update 3/07/2008 Received all contracted DOQQ’s for Molokai, Lanai, Maui, Molokini Crater and Kahoolawe in 398 DOQQ Contracted* May 2007. Four Band Product .6 M Orthoimagery Civil Gov’t License * Select Hawaii DG-QuickBird contracts are pending (10/23/2006) at USGS
  • 5. Original Source QB Imagery (Top) and Tone Balanced Imagery (Bottom)
  • 6. The QuickBird Image displayed here is already completed as Orthoimagery. The areas in red need to be re-tasked for new imagery collection. Ordered re-tasking of 18 DOQQ’s in March 2007. August 2007 - DigitalGlobe successfully re-tasked 13 DOQQ’s with lower cloud cover. New DOQQ’s were delivered January 2008. New mosaic will be created in 2008!
  • 7. Orthoimagery Update Hawaii Orthoimagery Update Tone matched, MrSID’s Orthoimagery Mosaics (12;1) have been distributed for the following islands: -Niihau (QB, .6 Meter, Natural Color, CIR) -Kauai (QB, .6 Meter, Natural Color, CIR) -Oahu (USGS Urban 133, 1 Ft. Natural Color) -Maui (QB, .6 Meter, Natural Color, CIR), To be revised in 2008! -Lanai (QB, .6 Meter, Natural Color, CIR) -Molokai (QB, .6 Meter, Natural Color, CIR) -Kahoolawe (QB, .6 Meter, Natural Color, CIR) Hawaii is in progress! The NCGC has distributed the MrSID’s mosaics to USGS, NOAA, NPS, USDA-FS, USDA-FAS and the State of Hawaii. FEMA (Dewberry) has requested this recently.
  • 8. DG-QuickBird Status by DOQQ (03/2008) All areas in Green and Orange have been received by USDA. As of 3/07/2008…. - 247 DOQQ’s have been received. - 26 DOQQ are tasking.
  • 9. Hawaii, March 2008 DG-QuickBird Status by DOQQ (03/2008) - Approximately 75% of DOQQ’s received had 0-2% cloud cover - Approximately 15% of DOQQ’s received have 2% to 10% clouds. - Remaining 26 DOQQ’s if acquired from current achieve would have 10% to 75% clouds. - USDA will make an interim mosaic of currently received data.

  • 17. USDA License Information DigitalGlobe- QuickBird Satellite Hawaii – Pacific Basin Imagery • Digital Globe data is licensed (Not Public Domain). • USDA purchased a Civil Government License. Department of Defense upgraded this license to DOD, Title 50 Level in Fall 2007. • All Federal Government (Civil, Defense), State, Local and cooperators such as Universities can use this data. • USDA (Federal Gov’t) cooperators (Land Owners etc..) can use this dataset. • Imagery data can be used on Websites as long as the original source data is compressed (25 to 1) and cannot be downloaded. • QuickBird data is NOT licensed for GIS/Mapping/Commercial companies that resell or repackage the imagery data in any way.
  • 18. Final Notes - USDA recognizes the importance of providing quality Geospatial data for Hawaii and the Pacific Basin. - USDA will continue to partner when financially possible on future Imagery acquisition and coordinate with other Federal and State agencies. - USDA-NRCS (Tony Kimmet) is representing Hawaii and Pacific Basin for NDOP- Imagery for the Nation (IFTN) Technical Specifications committee. The NDOP Technical Subcommittee will meet during the week of March 17th to discuss specification for Imagery acquisition for the United States including Hawaii, Pacific Basin, Alaska, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
