Descriptive namePictometry 2008 Orthophoto Tiles
File namept08sor4
Spatial domainEastern Pima County
AbstractPictometry uses a grid of squares called "sectors" that define a project area. The tiles represent the areas covered by each of the 4-inch resolution orthophotos in JPG format in the Pictometry 2008 data "AZPIMA08-093-TILES-4INCH" directory.

pt08sor4 is that sector grid for the 2008 Pictometry 4 inch orthophotos in the Tucson metropolitan area.
Known errors/qualificationsWhile these pictometry sectors are approximately 1/2 mile square, they are not based on PLSS quarter sections and are offset considerably from the PLSS section grid.
