Dataset Basics

The National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) acquires imagery during the agricultural growing seasons in the continental United States. The purpose of the program is to provide current information regarding agricultural conditions in support of the United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) farm programs. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) provided copies of the uncompressed, 4-band Geotiff quarter quad images and the compressed, 4-band JPEG2000 images to the Indiana Spatial Data Portal for public distribution.

The Indiana 2010 NAIP program provided data as 4 band (R, G, B, and Near IR) quarter quadrangle tiles in GeoTiff and JPEG2000 formats and as 3 band (R, G, B ) county mosaics in compressed (15:1 target compression) MrSID format. The USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) created the compressed county mosaic product to provide timely information for the FSA compliance program. Photo Science, the Indiana acquisition vendor, acquired the imagery using Intergraph’s Z/I Imaging Digital Mapping Camera (DMC), a framing camera, which supports simultaneous (color and color infrared) digital images.  Image acquisition began June 18, 2010, and ended August 27, 2010.

The 2010 NAIP county mosaic dataset includes polygons (shapefile format) delineating the seam boundaries of images used to create the county mosaics. Users can use these polygons as a tool to determine the image source date for each section of a mosaiced image. The metadata for each quarter quad image includes the source date of the image.
