Metadata Summary

Originator Minnesota DNR - MIS Bureau
Abstract This 1 meter resolution, natural color imagery is derived directly from the original uncompressed TIFF quarter-quad orthophotos as provided by LMIC. The Minnesota DNR has
  • Re-projected the images that were originally rectified to UTM Zone 14 to UTM Zone 15
  • Mosiacked the images into uncompressed 15 minute tiles
  • Compressed the resulting tiles to ECW (enhanced wavelet compression) format using ER Mapper image processing software.
Enjoy!
Use Tips Requires the installation of the ER Mapper ECW Viewer Plugin for ArcGIS. Link: http://www.ermapper.com/downloads/
Look for the "Products & Downloads" link, then select "Download Plugins" from the menu.
