This data layer is 2018 spring leaf-off orthophotography. It originated from Hennepin County and The Sanborn Map Company, Inc. and covers Hennepin County at a 3 inch resolution. 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.
