New Leaf-off Imagery Available for Arrowhead Region
By Steve Kloiber, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources

High-resolution imagery collected for the Arrowhead Region of Minnesota in Spring 2009 is now available through the MnGeo web mapping service. This is the first publicly available leaf-off imagery for this part of the state in 18 years.

This dataset includes four band (red, green, blue, and infrared), digital ortho-photography of Cook, Lake, and St. Louis counties along with parts of Itasca, Koochiching, and Carlton counties.  The base resolution of the imagery is one-half meter  (50-centimeters), but with partner contributions, about 40% of the 15,000-mile2 project area was collected at 1-foot resolution (30 centimeters).

The imagery was collected through a multi-agency collaborative effort headed by the Minnesota DNR with contributions from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, St. Louis County, and the U.S. Geological Survey.
