Good story, good work.
Go to www.co.ramsey.mn.us/cs/GIS.htm and click on GIS mapping on the left hand side of the screen. There is an option to change to aerial photos, too (The earliest available dates from 1940.) You can see how the lay of the land changed over time.
Thank you, Gail Rosenblum, for writing this article. As a geographer, I am constantly trying to explain what GIS is to people, and how it affects their lives. This historical GIS study is a great example of what geography can do for someone.
I hope the Indians don't read this article and use these guys to get their land back!
working at a bridge job, thanks for the publicity. In an industry that currently averages about 120 applications per job opening, we need more folks with GIS certifications (sarcasm). Of course GIS is awesome, cool and will revolutionize many things in the future. Thanks- had to vent.
I have only seen a portion of what GIS is capable of and I've always been impressed with it. I wish I had access to more GIS resources or even had gone with that career path as it looks very interesting.
