Description This portion of the data release contains digital image mosaics along the south coast of Moloka'i. Digital mosaics at 1-foot (0.3048-meter) resolution, including the areas of Pala'au, Umipa'a, Kaunakakai, Kamiloloa, Kawela, Kamalo, and Kalaeloa, were generated from 1:10K aerial photography, and are presented in one zip file (molokai_1ft.zip) that also contains lower-resolution 'browse' graphics of each image-mosaic area, as well as associated metadata. Digital mosaics at 1-meter resolution, including the areas of La'au Point, Hale O Lono, Waiakane, Pala'au, Kaunakakai, Kamiloloa, Kawela, Kamalo, and Puko‘o, were generated from 1:35K aerial photography, and are presented in a second zip file (molokai_1m.zip) that also contains 'browse' graphics of each image mosaic area, as well as associated metadata. Several of the 1-meter-resolution images have been merged together and combined with lidar bathymetry data to create three large shaded-relief images along the southwest (Waiakane to Pala'au), southcentral (Pala'au to Kawela), and southeast (Kawela to Puko'o) coasts of Moloka'i. These shaded-relief images are presented in a third zip file (molokai_1m_shaded.zip), along with 'browse' graphics of each image mosaic area and associated metadata. [More]
