This compliance analysis used digital and older analog aerial photography that had been scanned and orthorectified. Seven different vintages of imagery, from 1975 through 2011, were used to assess  the growth of surface disturbance  at several different mine sites and determine compliance with  maximum ground disturbance limits.  Final calculations and maps produced from the analysis helped support  a determination that one site was not in compliance.  The analysis was used to work with the mining company and bring the site back into compliance.
