Data Extent

Sample of Mandan, North Dakota Aerial Image Dataset

Originally produced by the Farm Security Administration, these are georeferenced aerial images from Morton County, North Dakota.

Historic print images housed at the Mandan, North Dakota ARS Long-Term Agricultural Research facility were digitized, georeferenced, and processed for use in both professional and consumer level GIS applications, or in photo-editing applications. The original images were produced by the Farm Security Administration to monitor government compliance for farm land agreements. Current applications include assessing land use change over time with regard to erosion, land cover, and natural and man-made structures. Not for use in high precision applications.
