described was compiled onto a CD entitled: “The
Louisiana GIS CD: A Digital Map of the State.” The
CD can be used alone or as part of a GIS. By employing
a GIS, users can view, print, and plot the data,
customizing the information to their needs. The
CD, as well as additional data sets, can be accessed
on the Internet.
Using the Internet Explorer, go to http://atlas.lsu.edu/doqq which will bring up the Louisiana CIR DOQQ downloader.
Please note that it will take some time to access
the page the first time you go there. The web site
will ask you if you want to install the INTERCAP
software. Answer YES, which will allow you to view
the map of Louisiana. Next, it will ask you if
you want it to be the default tiff browser. Answer
NO. The atlas site will bring up a map of Louisiana
indicating where MrSID compressed CIR DOQQs are
available. You can zoom in and select the image
you are looking to download. If you need help,
the atlas page (http://atlas.lsu.edu/doqqhelp)
has CIR DOQQ help instructions on what you will
need to download, unzip, and view a MrSID compressed
CIR DOQQ map image.
The ArcView vector coverages which overlay the
images can be found at the Louisiana
Geographic Information Center (LAGIC) web page.
From there, scroll down to the Search the Catalog:
dialog box and click on Show All Datasets. The
web server should return with 78 data bundles that
are currently available for downloading.
