This CD contains 214 images from 1954 for Mellette County, SD

The photos are from Mellette (1954 Part D – Final Soil Lines) County, SD. No index map was prepared for the photos. The scale of the original photos was 1:15,840 or 4.0 inches = 1 mile. The inventory of images does not represent coverage of the entire county. The images contained on this file represent part of the air photo collection for Mellette County, SD that the South Dakota State University (SDSU) Pedology Project had on March 2004.
The structure of the files is as follows:

  1. There is a file folder for the county (e.g., Mellette).
  2. Within the county folder there is a folder for the year and month of the air photos (e.g., 1954Nov).
  3. Within the year folder there are files for each photo scanned. The images are identified by the code used on the original photo/image. There is a county ID, a flight ID, and a photo ID on each air photo and that is what was used to name the image (e.g., BOH-5N-81).
  4. Where possible, the original photo ID information was scanned with the photo (top of the image).
  5. Where more than one scan of an image was needed to scan all the image, the image ID was followed by an additional set of letters to indicate what part of the image the scan represents (e.g., BOH-5N-82L = left side and BOH-5N-82R = right side of image BOH-5N-82).
  6. Mellette County, SD photo code – BOH.
