      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Up to date air photos

My (public) hunting land has changed a lot in the past 2 years with all the Aspen/pouplar logging.

Any ideas how to get an up-to-date photo or satelite image of the area NW of Red Lake?

Has anyone hired a pilot to take photos?

Google Earth's images would be too old to check this out but Microsoft's program I believe is within two years old. There are many sites that offer it including Ducksunlimited and Yellowpages. Just do a search and go to their map area. Then it's easy to zoom in on the area you are looking for and 100% cheaper than paying a pilot. These are what I use for all my areal shots. Some areas have much more detail as far as how far you can zoom than others, usually more urban. I'm sure you won't get to zoom in as far up there but will still give you a good idea if new enough for you.

Google Earth, Terraserver, DNR images, MapsLive, etc are all too old.

How about those guys that go around selling you air photos of your farm?

Counties typically are updating their air photo base every couple of years nowadays, so depending on what county you're in, there might be updated aerial photography through them. Typically, these counties will either re-sell the data, or provide it via online GIS services similar to google earth, mapquest, etc.

The best bet is to check with your county GIS office, which in most counties is a division of environmental services or landuse planning.

If you're in Beltrami County, it looks like they have their own online GIS browser @

Beltrami County GIS site

Select the newest/latest/greatest imagery under "base maps", but remember that you have to zoom in far enough to display this information.

Tons of local resources available nowadays.

Was the Microsoft program too old? I checked and it was dated 2006 and 2007.

weather.com if you zoom in on the radar it goes to 2003? or later air photos, DU's hunting map same thing zoom in and it changes to recent air photos even in Canada, if you have the software DNR's Data Deli and NRCS' Geo Gateway have USDA airphotos I think Geo Gateway has 2006 but you need software like ArcMap or ARCView

All sites stated are very good, but the only problem is that most of the images are at least five years old. For any thing newer you usally have to pay.

Thats not true. there are many places to find images that are less than a year or two old that don't require you to pay.

Northstar Mapper is one that has images as new as 2006. Also has older ones going back to 1991.
