To use this aerial photography in a GIS environment please go directly to the City's FTP site at
ftp://ftp.cob.org/gis_data/ to download files. Note that the aerials utilize a NAD83 projection by default but each photo also includes a corresponding NAD27 projection file named with _nad27.jgw after the name. The rest of the City's GIS data remains in the NAD27 projects but will be converted in the near future.
