Maps of St. Olaf Lands
In Fall of 2004, under the direction of Professor Brian Welch, the Remote Sensing and GIS class compiled a number of map layer and shapefiles of the land owned by St. Olaf College. These files, along with an updated version (Spring, 2006) of the campus border, wetlands, and campus trail system, were used to the following maps portraying the land owned by St. Olaf College. Coordinates and datum are in the NAD83, UTM Zone 15 System.
Data from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Data Deli, Minnesota Department of Transportation, U.S. Geological Survey, and U.S. Department of Agriculture were also utilized.
