This data layer is the 2010 Metro area Spring Orthophotography. It originated from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, 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, 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.
