The service provides a repository of aerial photos and topographic maps of terrain within the U.S. state of Minnesota. Photographs are taken from aircraft to capture surface features, and topographical maps are scanned from authoritative printed versions. The Web Map Service (WMS) stores and provides access to very large image files, saving the need to download and save local copies.
API methods support access to digital orthophotography and hillshade images as well as scanned USGS quadrangle topographic maps for locations in Minnesota specified by latitude and longitude or UTM zone. Returned data compliant with WMS protocols provide links to image files in jpeg and png formats.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
