MLEP offers online Landview mapping training
The Minnesota Logger Education Program announced a new online mapping training this month. The new training is based on the Minnesota DNR’s Landview application. A basic version of Landview is already online, but this training introduces a newer, far more powerful version that can be downloaded to any PC running Windows.
The training has two components: Introduction and Advanced. The training is best suited to those comfortable with computing and working through a relatively high-speed internet connection. It may be of greatest interest to loggers, natural resource professionals, and advanced woodland owners. Beginners may be more comfortable with the more basic mapping options, as well as links and tutorials, on our Maps & Airphotos page.
Why is MLEP’s new training worth the time? The version of Landview covered in the training offers excellent quality airphoto imagery as well as numerous data layers not available through other sources. It also has other important features, notably the ability to transfer GPS data to or from your GPS receiver. This version is far more powerful than most online mapping applications.
Best of all, there’s no charge and the presentation is excellent. Check out MLEP’s new Landview training now.
