    Tarpaper canal is a former oil and gas canal whose spoil banks have been degraded and that has been restored to recreational access. Research Note: http://publiclab.org/notes/mseibert/12-20-2013/barataria-unit-tarpaper-canal-nw-monitoring-18-dec-2013


    Cartographer notes

    Lots of seasonal change happening in this scene. I was surprised how different the waterway and dried surfaces had changed. Only with the macro vegetation patterns was I apple to orthorectify this map.
