Abstract The data set consists of a series of natural color 0.03 meters (approximately 1 foot) digital orthoimages covering part of the Yellowstone River from Sweet Grass County, Montana to the Missouri River confluence in McKenzie County, North Dakota. This imagery will be used as the base for multiple purposes and analyses by the partnership of the YRCDC and the Army Corp of Engineers, Omaha District. The high resolution, 0.3 meter (approximately 1 foot) data will also be used as base map for monitoring long-term change.These images cover the course of the Yellowstone River through Sweet Grass, Treasure, Rosebud, Custer, Prairie, and Richland Counties, Montana, and McKenzie and Williams Counties in North Dakota. They were created by Woolpert to tie in with images collected in 2004 that cover the river in Stillwater, Yellowstone, and Dawson Counties, Montana.
Purpose These data were created as part of a joint Yellowstone River Conservation District Council and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District cumulative impacts study of the Yellowstone River channel and floodplain. The multi-agency interdisciplinary planning study extends 477 river miles from Sweet Grass County, Montana to the Missouri River confluence in McKenzie County, North Dakota. The datasets were created to operate within the ArcGIS software environment. In addition, they are intended to serve as a base for the project GIS and also to support a wide variety of analyses including planimetric data extraction (e.g., infrastructure, riverine geomorphology, land cover, habitat and vegetation), and to monitor long-term river channel changes.
