INTERPRETING LARGE FORMAT PHOTOGRAPHS

The enlarged photographs show several representative areas before and after the passage of
Hurricane Andrew.
The Pre-Hurricane Andrew photography was collected on February 16,1991. The post-Hurricane
photographywas collected on August 29-31, 1992 by NASA Stennis Space Center as a result of a special
request by Governor Chiles to Vice President Quayle (Chairman of the Office of the National Space
Council).
Color infrared photographs. It is important to note that the observed colors in the photographs are
not natural and represent the following:
Red = Lush green foliage (urban trees, orchards, mangrove wetlands, tropical forests, etc.).
Pink = Grasses and crops (golf courses, lawns, pastures, row crops, fields, etc.). Row crops are
planted seasonally, the before and after photography does not necessarily represent a loss.
Black, grey, blue, andlight colors = Urban and developed areas (commercial buildings, parkinglots,
roads, houses, barren ground, wetlands, etc.).
Brown = Vegetation stripped of leaves. (Dead or dying orchards, wetlands, urban trees, forests, etc.)
The squares marked on the photograph are approximately one square mile and represent one
Section within aTownship and Range. The photograph descriptions and associated property values are
for the marked square.


EXPLANATION OF PROPERTY VALUES


Property values were calculated by the State Department of Revenue using current Dade County
Property Appraisers Tax Rolls


The Pre-Storm Value (Improved Market Value) was calculated by increasing the tax recorded
improved value by 18% to account for standard adjustment to full market value. This number does not
include Land Values, which are in the AGRICULTURE category.


The Estimated Loss in these severely damaged areas is based on a 75% -100% loss of the Pre-Storm
Value.
