Orthophotos 2013 June
An orthophoto is an aerial photograph, geo-referenced and geometrically corrected to have a uniform scale, that can be situated accurately on a digital map. They are available for immediate download with digital licensing. The visible flood water extents are from that time frame. These photos do not necessarily indicate the maximum high water line nor the crest line from the flooding on June 20 and June 21, 2013. There is no determination or inference regarding how water shown in the photo got there, e.g., water from overland flooding, sewer back-up, ground seepage, etc. The colour orthophoto mosaic was created from approximately 400 images. The data was collected by Corporate Analytics & Innovation (CAI) during a State of Local Emergency in Calgary to produce orthophoto of the flood areas along the Bow and Elbow Rivers. Please note that these photographs do not represent the entire city of Calgary. They are limited to areas adjacent to the Bow and Elbow Rivers.
