News

*NEW for July:* The 2018 Airborne Electromagnetic Survey (AEM) Flights are underway for the ENWRA NRDs, working from south to north across eastern Nebraska. The Nemaha, Lower Platte North and Lower Platte South NRD flights are complete. The Lower Elkhorn and Papio-Missouri River NRD flights are anticipated to wrap up in the next two weeks with flights based out of the Pender airport. The Lewis and Clark NRD flights are anticipated to be toward the end of July and will be based mainly out of Hartington. Click here for an updated location map of the 2018 planned flights.

2016 Airborne Electromagnetic Survey (AEM) Flights

Several Natural Resources Districts (NRDs) across the state conducted AEM flights in July and early August 2016 using Water Sustainability Fund (WSF) grant dollars awarded in April 2016 ("https://nrc.nebraska.gov/water-sustainability-fund-0").

Each NRD had a mix of the following types of surveys flown:

Datasets

Google Earth Datasets:

The interpreted results for the 2016 AEM flights have been provided in Google Earth format. You can download the free version of Google Earth Pro by clicking here. Click here for a link to download the Google Earth datasets (.kmz file and associated image files, 80.5 MB) from ENWRA's Dropbox. You can select "no thanks" to the sign-up for a Dropbox account and still download the files. You must have Google Earth installed on your computer before downloading or opening the .kmz Google Earth dataset files.

If you already have a Dropbox account, please choose direct download to your computer so you do not fill up space on your personal Dropbox.

Please follow the instructions in the "GoogleE_README.pdf" PDF file on Dropbox here AND save the downloaded files with the same exact file structure as shown on the Dropbox. Google Earth will look here on your hard drive: C:\Sarpy_Profiles\ for every profile image when you touch a link on a data dot - see example image below. The easiest way is to do this is to create a folder named "Sarpy_Profiles" directly on your C drive and then save all the downloaded dropbox files to that folder.

Google Earth Tips and Tricks: Grab the map with your cursor and hold down the "u" key on your keyboard to view the earth looking straight down instead of at an angle. Do the same and hit the "n" key to orient the map north as up. Google Earth Pro (link above) is free and you can hit the file menu, then hit open, and then select all data import formats from the dropdown and open an ESRI shapefile or many other GIS file types in Google Earth directly from a saved location on your computer.
