Project: Minnesota Aerial Photography, 2006
Description: In fall 2006, new aerial photography was acquired over 40 Minnesota counties to validate or collect road centerline data in support of the US Census Bureau MAF/TIGER Accuracy Improvement Project (MTAIP). The Census Bureau worked through their prime contractor, The Harris Corporation, to verify that all local street centerline GIS files meet or exceed the spatial accuracy requirement of 7.6 meters. The Harris Corporation contracted with MacDonald, Dettwiler & Associates (MDA) of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada to acquire aerial photography to be used in evaluation/data development process for selected counties.
