Land Use, 1969: Minnesota

Creator:
Minnesota Geospatial Information Office (MnGeo)
Description:
One of the original Minnesota Land Management Information System (MLMIS) data sets created in the 1970's, this dataset describes the state's land use patterns in 1969. Nine land use/land cover classes, interpreted from high altitude air photos, are recorded for each 40-acre parcel in the state. These classes include: forested; cultivated; water; marsh; urban residential; extractive; pasture and open; urban non-residential or mixed residential; and transportation. MLMIS data sets were created by grid cell coding a value for each 40-acre parcel in the state. The file was later subdivided into 100-meter by 100-meter grid cells and spatially corrected to provide improved geographic reference. However, this processing step does not improve on the 40-acre resolution of the original data set.
