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 libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
