Extent of available data.
This data layer is 2008 Spring Orthophotography. It originated from the US Geological Survey and covers the Minneapolis-St. Paul area at a 0.3 meter resolution. 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.
