Description

North Dakota aerial photography taken 1957 through 1962 at a scale of 1:20,000. This dataset was developed in a partnership with the USDA-Aerial Photography Field Office, the State Water Commission, and the GIS Technical Committee. The photos have been scanned at 1200 DPI and they have about a .47-meter pixel resolution. Please note that these photos have been georeferenced with a minimum number of data points. The photos have not been orthorectified and therefore there will be photo anomalies and mis-matches between adjoining photos. Caution should be exercised if attempting to use this imagery to conduct measurements. This dataset contains a number of areas with missing imagery. Efforts will be made to obtain the missing photos and fix these areas.

Summary

The North Dakota GIS Technical Committee partnered with the USDA-Aerial Photography Field Office and the State Water Commission to develop a statewide aerial imagery dataset that pre-dates the 1995-1998 USGS DOQQs. This imagery will be used by multiple state agencies for change detection and change analysis.
