Item Identification

Title: 1949 Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands Historical Scanned Imagery
Short Name: 1949_cnmi
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2013-11-20
Abstract:

These images are part of a project funded by NOAA Office for Coastal Management to develop a high quality, user-friendly, attributed, centralized, multi-territorial digital database of georeferenced historic aerial imagery in the Pacific Islands region, including Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. The objective of this project is to make previously unavailable historic aerial imagery of the Pacific Islands available for public consumption through NOAA's Digital Coast website. These images were scanned on a flatbed scanner and georeferenced to existing basemap data.

Purpose:

The purpose of these digitally scanned images is to preserve the original hardcopy documents. This resource will give coastal decision makers and local communities access to geospatial data that provides a historical context against which to measure the impacts of current and future localized storm events, wave-driven inundation from distant storms, and sea-level rise impacts.
