Spring Aerial Imagery Program for Minnesota (SAIP): 2009-2014

Spring Imagery Home | Northeast | East-Central | South | Central and Northwest


The goal of the Spring Aerial Imagery Program was to acquire 4-band leaf-off imagery statewide.

The State of Minnesota has provided funding through the Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund for a phased update of the National Wetland Inventory. Under the direction of the DNR, this effort requires up-to-date, spring leaf-off, natural color and infrared aerial photography. The State collaborates with partners to leverage this funding in order to acquire higher-resolution imagery in many areas.
