In 2000 the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program collected 1:16,000-scale true color aerial photographs for the Upper Mississippi and Illinois River floodplains. Adjacent contact prints created from the 9"x9" photo transparencies were scanned at 200dpi. The photos are served as georeferenced .sid images. A free image viewer capable of subsetting, resampling, and exporting the compressed images to georeferenced TIFF images (a .tif image and a .tfw world file) is available.
