I'm not done yet but I'm stitching together some aerial photographs from the UF Digital Collections website (you can see each individual image in detail here: http://ufdc.ufl.edu/UF00071738/00001/1x?coord=25.76326480202758,-80.52202458164993,25.65761991333506,-80.2822494506836 . The images ("tiles") start from Northeast Miami (around Miami Springs/above Miami International Airport) and go south to around Cutler Bay and then cut a bit west of the first set of images going back north and then back south after reaching the northern set of images. I don't know if anybody has already stitched them together, if so please share the link and spare me the trouble! It's not perfectly stitched together since the images don't combine perfectly (I'm sure the plane couldn't hold the exact altitude throughout the entire flight). This is a great way to see what was a hardwood hammock/pine rocklands/sawgrass marsh before we started populating Dade County! I hope we "Hold the line" and don't keep cutting into the Everglades...
