NYS Orthoimagery Application

Here is a link to NYS Orthos Online Aerial Imagery for your viewing pleasure. Start studying now Dan! Detail is pretty good when zoomed in, I can see my trailer, the Humphrey House, dump trucks, and the hunting camp.

One thing you don’t see is all the snow that is still on the ground! If you want to get an idea of that check this out “What a difference a year makes!”, posted by the same guy who runs www.ilsnow.com. He is right about the NOAA link, I lost half an hour just like that playing around with all the options and I have no idea what most of them even mean. 🙂

So where are we gonna try to “Troop” this Spring/Summer?

Even Cabela’s has an app now!

Check it out here: Cabela’s RECON HUNT for iPhone

“Cabela’s Recon Hunt is the first mobile navigation app built solely for hunters. With Recon Hunt, you can find hunting spots on detailed maps, track wildlife, take trophy photos and backtrack home. Recon Hunt also tracks other essentials as well: weather forecasts, sun and moon phases, trip stats and ballistics information. Our power saver technology monitors how you use the app in order to preserve battery power. Plus, Recon Hunt works in remote places without the need of data and cellular signals.”

You will need a newer iPhone, iPad, or compatiable android handset to use this app. Believe it or not, I don’t have any of those devices. Yet. When I do acquire said device, this will be one of the first apps I download.
