Digital Aerial Photo (UE Version) (DAP-UE)
The Digital Aerial Photo (UE Version) is the digital aerial photograph captured by the large format digital aerial camera which was put in commission in mid-2016. The digital aerial camera is able to capture five spectral bands information (Panchromatic, Red, Green, Blue and Near-infrared). The dynamic range of the colour information is higher than 12-bit. A total of three products, DAP_RGBI, DAP_RGB and DAP_CIR, are generated for each shot. Photo information, for example photo number, date of flight, flying height etc., is kept in the EXIF data instead of presenting on the image.
DAP_RGBI is digital aerial photograph in 16-bit file format consisting of four spectral bands (Red, Green, Blue and Near-infrared) with a file size about 2GB. No radiometric correction or colour balancing is applied in order to retain the original colour to facilitate spectrum study.
DAP_RGB and DAP_CIR are digital aerial photographs in 8-bit file format with radiometric correction applied with a file size about 760MB. DAP_RGB is RGB colour image (consisting of Red, Green and Blue bands) while DAP_CIR is false colour infrared image (consisting of Near-infrared, Red and Green bands).
The DAP-UE is suitable for photogrammetric measurement. In purchasing the DAP-UE, the relevant camera calibration report would be provided.
The DAP-UE is provided in TIFF Format with World File, the georeference information stored in World File is only for general position only.
