The Ocean Archive System searches our original datasets as they were submitted to us, not individual points or profiles. If you want to search and retrieve ocean profiles in a common format, or objectively analyzed fields, your better option may be to use one of our project applications. See: Access Data

|Title:||NOAA Integrated Ocean and Coastal Mapping (IOCM) true color (RGB) orthorectified mosaic image tiles, Baton Rouge to LaPlace, Louisiana 2010 (NODC Accession 0074374)|
|Abstract:||This data set contains ortho-rectified mosaic tiles, created as a product from the NOAA Integrated Ocean and Coastal Mapping (IOCM) initiative of the Mississippi River (Baton Rouge to LaPlace, the Louisiana shoreline, the Lake Charles area, and LaPlace to Venice). The true color images were acquired with an Applanix Digital Sensor System (DSS). The original images were acquired at a higher resolution than the final ortho-rectified mosaic. Ortho-rectified mosaic tiles are an ancillary product of NOAA's Coastal Mapping Program (CMP), created through a wider Integrated Ocean and Coastal Mapping initiative to increase support for multiple uses of the data.|
For the Louisiana shoreline, the purpose of the imagery was to provide digital shoreline and orthophotos for NOAA nautical charts. The shoreline area covers the Barrier Islands of Terrebonne and Timbalier Bays on the coast of the State of Louisiana.
For Baton Rouge, source imagery was acquired on March 13, 2010, March 14, 2010 and March 15, 2010. The ground sample distance (GSD) for each pixel is 0.5 m. These data are in .his, .tif, and .jpg formats with associated metadata. Additional orthoimagery for this region (Baton Rouge to Southwest Pass) are filed under NODC accession numbers 0103945 and 0104414. Additional ortho-mosaic data is available at the NODC under individual accession numbers.
Ortho-rectified mosaic tiles are not intended for mapping, charting or navigation.
