Abstract Aerial photo mosaics of the Yellowstone River corridor. Images are from 1976, in MrSID format. These images range in size from 12 to 55 megabytes.These images were georeferenced to 1995 U.S. Geological Survey Digital Orthophoto Quadrangles. Positional accuracy was targeted on the river corridor. Little effort was made to reference the upland areas in regions of high relief.In general, there is one image for each county, from Sweet Grass to Dawson. Yellowstone County is divided into 5 images. Yellowstone1 covers the Laurel/Yegen area. Yellowstone2 covers the area around Billings. Yellowstone3 covers the area around Huntley. Yellowstone4 covers the area around Ballantine and Pompey's Pillar. Yellowstone5 covers the area around Custer.Some older GIS applications may need .sdw files to accompany these files for georeferencing information. ESRI's ArcMap needs .aux files to read the coordinate system of the images from. These files may be accessed at https://ftpgeoinfo.msl.mt.gov/Data/Spatial/NonMSDI/Collections/Yellowstone_River_Clearinghouse/Imagery/1976/aux_and_sdw.zip.
Purpose Developed as part of the Yellowstone River Cummulative Effects Study. Imagery is intended for reach level analysis of changes in the Yellowstone River Corridor.
