MassGIS Data: 2015 WorldView Orthoimagery Indexes

December 2015
 MassGIS has created two polygon data layers to index the 2015 WorldView Orthoimagery.
The Web Service Index stores information on which imagery was used in the final Web service tile cache, and the Image Tile Index represents the extent of the individual image files.
Download these layers (Shapefiles) View and query the indexes in the 2015 WorldView Orthoimagery Index Map.

Sample of 2015 WorldView Orthoimagery Indexes

MassGIS has created two polygon data layers to index the 2015 WorldView Orthoimagery:

  • The Web Service Index stores information on which imagery was used in the final Web service tile cache, including date of imagery and which satellite (WorldView 2 or WorldView 3) was used to capture the image data. This dataset was created by MassGIS based on strip and tile shapefile provided to MassGIS with the imagery from DigitalGlobe. The statewide Web service, available for use by the general public, may be accessed at http://massgis.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=70618f7b1fe0409da232501e1a562e67. This index layer is named COQ2015WVWEBSRVINDEX_POLY. The Web Service Index Map pdf format of 2015 WorldView Orthoimagery Web
Service Index
uses this layer.
  • Each polygon in the Image Tile Index represents the extent of the individual image files as delivered to MassGIS and contains information such as date of photography, off-nadir angle, sun azimuth and the name of the satellite that captured the data. MassGIS created the index by combining shapefiles provided by DigitalGlobe with the imagery. This index layer is named COQ2015WVTILEINDEX_POLY.

For both layers, the Projection (Spatial Reference) is Geographic (Latitude/Longitude); Datum is WGS 84. Units are decimal degrees. This spatial reference matches that of the imagery.

Attributes

The Web Service Index contains the following fields:
PHOTODATE Date of photography
SATELLITE Name of the satellite (WorldView2 or WorldView3) that captured the imagery
The Image Tile Index contains the following fields:
TILENAME Code used by DigitalGlobe during production
FILENAME Name of image file as delivered by DigitalGlobe
PRODDESC Code used by DigitalGlobe during production
VOLNUM Code used by DigitalGlobe during production
PHOTODATE Date of photography in YYYYMMDD format
SATELLITE The name of the satellite (WorldView2 or WorldView3) that captured the imagery
STRIPDESC Name of the strip (north-south pass of satellite) of imagery
SUNAZIMUTH Azimuth, in degrees, of the sun at the time the photo was taken
OFFNADIR The angle away from the sensor's nadir (the point directly beneath a scanner's detectors)
ACQ_DATE Photo acquisition date and time

Maintenance

MassGIS maintains these data layers.
