Abstract Color Aerial photos of the Yellowstone River floodplain in Stillwater, Yellowstone, and Dawson Counties, Montana. Photos are georeferenced and georectified, and have a ground resolution of 0.3 meters, or approximately one foot. The photographs were taken on May 1 and 2, 2004.
Purpose This coverage was created as part of a joint Yellowstone River Conservation Districts 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 Sweetgrass County, Montana to the Missouri River confluence in McKenzie County, North Dakota. It is specifically intended to support the hydraulic, geomorphic, biologic and socioeconomic analyses that are part of the planning study. The first phase of the mapping focused on Stillwater, Yellowstone and Dawson Counties in Montana and included approximately 295 square miles of floodplain. These high resolution (30 cm) digital images are intended to serve as a base for the project GIS and were acquired to support a wide variety of analyses including: digital surface model development (topographic base for hydraulic floodplain delineation), planimetric data extraction (infrastructure, riverine geomorphology, land cover, habitat and vegetation), and as a base map for monitoring long-term river channel changes.
