New orthorectified imagery and LiDAR was provided of Downtown Miami, a 1,612 square mile area, including skyscrapers 50 to 70 stories tall, for ITD’s GIS implementation program that supports multiple County stakeholders for property assessment, land-use planning, engineering design, and infrastructure monitoring. Cutting edge technology was used to overcome the challenge of building lean in Downtown’s dense urban area of tall buildings and the digital imagery showed the buildings straight or nearly straight.

The contract’s scope of work will includes Miami International Airport (MIA), and the 4 county-owned auxiliary airports, which include Miami Executive Airport (TMB), Miami-Opa-Locka Executive Airport (OPF), Miami Homestead General Aviation Airport (X51), and Dade-Collier Training and Transition Airport (TNT), as well as the coverage area of the county’s enterprise Geographic Information System (GIS) supported by ITD.
