Color Orthophotos have been added to the Digital Atlas and the Topofinder
NRIS is pleased to announce that Montana's 2005 color orthophotos from the National Agricultural Imagery Program (NAIP) have been integrated with the Montana Digital Atlas application at http://nris.mt.gov/mapper and the Topofinder application at http://maps2.nris.mt.gov/scripts/esrimap.dll?name=LocMap&Cmd=Map
We have also enhanced the Topofinder to display U.S. National Grid (USNG) coordinates. You can also use Topofinder's Search Tools to enter a USNG coordinate and focus the map at that location.
Lastly, the Digital Atlas and the Topofinder now seamlessly display USGS 1:24,000 scale topographic maps. Compare a view from the previous version of the Topofinder at http://maps2.nris.mt.gov/topofinder1/old_24k.jpg to the current version at http://maps2.nris.mt.gov/topofinder1/new_24k.jpg.
