Pedology CD 05-14
This file contains 145 images from 1939 of McPherson County, SD.
The photos are from McPherson (1939 + Field Notes) County, SD. No index map was prepared for the photos. The scale of the original photos was 1:20,000 or 3.17 inches = 1 mile. The inventory of images does not represent coverage of the entire county. The images contained in this file represent part of the air photo collection for Meade County, SD that the South Dakota State University (SDSU) Pedology Project had on July 2005.
The structure of the files is as follows:
- There is a file folder for the county (e.g., McPherson).
- Within the county folder there is a folder for the year and month of the air photos (e.g., 1939 Aug).
- 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., CBT-1-60)
- The original photo ID information was scanned with the photo (top of the image). The pohoto ID location represents either the west or north side of the image
- McPherson County, SD photo code – CBT.
