On the NDIC GIS map server, one can click on "NAIP 2009" under "imagery" at the sidebar to the right of the map. The reader says the imagery may not be as recent as Google's and having just looked at it, it seems not to be as clear. However, the topography seems to be better visualized. Anyway, at least two options.The instructions below seem a bit complicated, but once you do it, you will see how fast it is: a) center your cursor; b) click on "rect identify'; c) cut and paste the "lat" and "lon" at google maps. You don't have to clean up the "lat" and "lon" before pasting.
Original PostEasy as pie.
1. NDIC website.
2. Click on "GIS Map Server" on left sidebar, about the eleventh button down.
3. At the map, at the sidebar on the left, near the bottom, click on find well.
4. Type in one word of the well's name. Locate the name of the well you are looking for.
5. Click on that well. It will be highlighted on the GSI map server.
6. Again, on the sidebar at the left of the map, click on the eleventh button down, "Rect Identify."
7. Nothing will happen. Drag the cross-hairs over the well you are interested in. Click on that well.
8. At the bottom of the GIS map are the coordinates of the well; you will have to scroll to the right.
9. Do you see "lat," and "lon"? Highlight the "lat" and "lon" with your curser. "Copy."
10. Go to Google maps.
11. Paste "lat" and "lon" into the white rectangle/search box at the top of Google maps.
12. Hit search, and voila -- there you are. Make sure you are in "satellite" mode on Google maps and you can drill down to see the well.
