Minnesota Land Management Information Center

The LMIC has been responsible for developing a strategic plan for the Minnesota GIS - Minnesota's Spatial Data Infrastructure. Recent success stories include the acquisition of 2003 orthoimagery for the entire State (cooperatively funded by the state and the National Aerial Imagery Program of the Farm Services Agency) and they made data available at no cost to users. LMIC maintains the MN Geographic Data Clearinghouse - a LMIC program that serves as a "One Stop" source for geospatial data needed to power Geographic Information Systems. Be sure to see the raster clipping project for DOQQs, NAIP data, and other othophotos... see - for DRGs see here
