Metadata Updated: December 12, 2017

Georeferenced image, acquired on August 27, 1965 over a portion of the Ouray National Wildlife Refuge. Image covers the northern portion of the refuge including Leota and Johnson Bottoms. This data set is a georeferenced version of an original black and white aerial photograph downloaded from Earth Explorer (USGS; The original photo (Frame 131) was georeferenced against the 2009 NAIP image within ArcMap 10.1. Six to eight points were used in the georeferencing process. This data set provides a look back in time following the closure of the Flaming Gorge Dam. It allows a look at landscape features including riparian vegetation extent, existing farmland, shrublands, etc. It also provides an important look at the location of the Green River channel to interpret river dynamics and movement. The image covers most of Leota Bottom and all of Johnson Bottom. This image provides a snapshot soon after construction began on the wetland impoundments within Leota Bottom. Pixel resolution of this image is 0.6 meters. This image should be used for resource level interpretation only.
