DESCRIPTION : THIS BEAUTIFUL COLORED ORTHOPHOTOMAP OF KEDGES STRAITS, MARYLAND WAS PREPARED BY THE U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY FROM AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN APRIL 5, 1972. THE TOPOGRAPHY WAS BY PHOTOGRAMMETRIC METHODS FROM AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN IN 1972 AND FIELD CHECKED THAT YEAR. THE BATHYMETRY WAS COMPILED BY THE NATIONAL OCEAN SERVICE FROM TIDE-COORDINATED HYDROGRAPHIC SURVEYS. BECAUSE OF THE ABSENCE OF AIDS TO NAVIGATION AND OTHER HYDROGRAPHIC INFORMATION, THIS MAP IS NOT INTENDED FOR USE IN NAVIGATION. THE BATHYMETRY WAS ADDED TO THIS MAP IN 1987.

THE MAP IS ON THE 1927 NORTH AMERICAN DATUM, WITH INSTRUCTIONS TO CONVERT TO THE NORTH AMERICAN 1983 DATUM BY MOVING THE PROJECTION LINES 9 METERS SOUTH AND 29 METERS WEST.

THIS MAP IS ONE OF A LARGE SERIES ON A SCALE OF 1:24,000 PRODUCED BY THE U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY.

EDITION & STATE INFO : THIS MAP WAS DONE IN 1972 AND UPDATED IN 1987 BY THE ADDITION OF BATHYMETRIC INFORMATION.
