The Ohio Statewide Imagery Program (OSIP) is a partnership between State agencies and the federal government to develop high-resolution imagery and elevation data for the entire state to benefit GIS users at all levels of government. Accurate imagery and elevation data serves as the backbone for the development of additional data sets that are currently maintained and accessed by government decision makers and the public.
Through this cooperative agreement OGRIP published Northern Tier OSIP imagery products using OpenGIS® Web Map Services to GIServOhio, The National Map, and the Geospatial One-Stop portal. In addition, OGRIP supplied Northern Tier OSIP imagery and elevation data to the USGS National Geospatial Technical Operations Center (NGTOC) and the USGS Center for LiDAR Information Coordination and Knowledge (CLICK) for inclusion in the seamless server and National Elevation Dataset programs.
Final delivery of Southern Tier imagery and elevation data products have not been received at this time, however, all Southern Tier products will be supplied to USGS and included in the OSIP WMS services upon receipt. Of additional note, during the 2007 data acquisition 5 Southern Tier counties were not acquired due to poor weather conditions. The 5 remaining Southern Tier counties are planned for acquisition during the 2008 spring flying season (weather permitting), and will also be supplied to USGS and included in the OSIP WMS services upon receipt.
