Series of aerial images over Marais des Cygnes National Wildlife Refuge, acquired in 1950

Metadata Updated: May 23, 2017

This dataset includes 10 georeferenced images, acquired on July 13, 1950 over portions of Marais des Cygnes National Refuge in eastern Kansas. This data set is a georeferenced version of an original black and white aerial photograph downloaded from Earth Explorer (USGS). The original photos were georeferenced against the Linn County 2012 NAIP images. This data set provides a look back in time at land conditions along a stretch of the Marais des Cygnes River which is now part of the refuge. These images (at a resolution of 0.6 meters) allows a very detailed look at habitats including areas that were cropped, native prairie, and woodlands at that time. Change over time estimates can be made from this image using current imagery for comparison. This image, and others from 1950, and 1938, is being used by refuge staff to assist in understanding and visualizing the historical content of the lands within the refuge and how they have changed over the last 50 years. Pixel resolution of this image is 0.6 meters. This image should be used for resource-level interpretation only.
