This data layer is the 2016 Metro area spring orthophotography. It originated from the Metropolitan Council and Surdex Corporation. It was captured at a 1 foot resolution and includes Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington counties. Orthophotography is extremely useful for determining land use and land cover. As a result of this, it can provide important context for specific locations and other spatial data. If multiple years are available, it can also be used to identify changes that take place on the landscape.
