Aerial Photos?

10 posts in this topic

Looking for something around the Angle on the Canadian side, but does anyone know where to find something like this? Would love to have an actual, aerial photo of the lake around there. Thanks!

You can download free aerial imagery of the entire state (divided up by county) at this site. The files are in MrSID format though, not sure if most photo viewing packages can read them or not.

Photos are from 2003. They have 2006 photos on the LMIC site too, but I'm not sure if they're downloadable or not.

Thanks for both of those links, I forgot about Google Earth. I'll probably end up using that if I can't find anything else, though I would still like to find something similar to a map that I can take out on the water with me. Any other ideas of somewhere I could go to find that?

Google "Angle Inlet". Click on the first hit "Map of Angle Inlet, MN". In the upper right hand corner, click on "Satellite".

This type of photo would be a rarity.

The majority of free and readily available aerial photography are funded through federal, state, and local governments for the purpose of landuse planning and/or resource concerns. These flights are primarily leaf off, typically early spring, or sometimes late fall. Unless someone would pay for the cost of the flight or satellite scene, the chances of such a photo existing are rare.

I have used those MrSID format photos before and didn't find them to be all that great. I downloaded the viewer for them and downloaded some of the photos but the file sizes were astronomical. They are okay, but for general use, the stuff from google earth/maps, mapquest, and or terraserver are going to be okay for most users.

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.
