I doubt there is anywhere that you can view live images via satellite. I would think that would be an invasion of privacy or something.

I haven't seen a live satelite feed site but theres Google Earth. I could see my own house and lake with this thing.

I think what Harvey had in mind was a real time picture to view real time conditions. Boy, I wish there was such a thing. I guarantee you that it's "out there", just not available to the general public wink.gif

You might try searching around on the USGS minnesota site, they have a LOT of info regarding Minnesota's water resources!

Google Earth is a great program. Although a lot of parts of MN arent all that clear like the large, popular cities. Even if you cant see your house in MN its still an awesome program to play around with. Also, if you want to find a pretty good quality aerial photo, try Terraserver. The pics may be pretty dated though, like 10 years or so old. But still cool.

For county by county MN aerial maps google search for LMIC (Land Management Information Center) and go to the section 'NAIP 2003 and 2003-04 Aerial Photography'

These are'.sid' files - aerial coverage for most MN counties, flown 2003-2004. There's a little learning curve to acquiring and using the data, but the help files are there. A plug-in for MS explorer is required to view, and its a free download from Lizardtech. Once installed, you can view the files from your browser. County files are large to download - bonus if you have high speed. You might be able to order CD's as well...

Very detailed, colored maps!!

HARVEY,

GOOGLE EARTH IS PAST TENSE WITH SAT IMAGRY, IF YOU WANT LIVE UPDATE IMAGRY TRY NOAA WEATHER SATS, THEY HAVE SOME LIVE LINKS THAT ARE CRAZY,MOST COLLEGES HAVE SAT LINKS FROM THE BIG HITTERS OUT THERE FOR GEO AND WEATHER RESEARCH.

Google must have updated their images recently; I was never impresed with the image quality but I checked it out again this week and the are that I hunt is now very clear and I can see some of the areas that have changed (clear cuts and whatnot) in the recent past. If you haven't been on there in a whil, it might be worth another look.

There is no real live satellite imagery, unless you want to pay Digital Globe or Space images a lot of money. That is presuming there is coverage where and when you need it. The best most of us can do is not more than 10 years old or so.

Most of the high resolution photos on Geosrver or Google Earth are taken from airplanes and aren't satellite images.

I have noticed that Mapquest has really stepped up its aerial photography. When you map a place, on the top right of the map that is shown, there is a button for aerial photo.

The navigation that you can do with the map is pretty cool also. Just left click, hold, and move the map where you want it.

Although it is not "up to the day" current, I think it can give a person a good layout of the land.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;
    • eyeguy 54
      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
