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 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

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!!

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.

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.
    • Borch
      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth. 
    • pikeandchester
      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!
    • leech~~
      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.
