Description:
Abstract:
This data set contains imagery from the National Agriculture
Imagery Program (NAIP).  NAIP acquires digital ortho imagery
during the agricultural growing seasons in the continental U.S.
A primary goal of the NAIP program is to enable availability of
of ortho imagery within one year of acquisition. The tiling format 
of NAIP imagery is based on a 3.75' x 3.75'quarter quadrangle 
with a 300 meter buffer on all four sides. NAIP quarter quads are
formatted to the UTM coordinate system using NAD83. 
NAIP imagery may contain as much as 10% cloud cover per tile.
Purpose:
NAIP imagery is available for distribution within 60 days
of the end of a flying season and is intended to provide current
information of agricultural conditions in support of USDA farm
programs. For USDA Farm Service Agency, the 1 meter GSD 
product provides an ortho image base for Common Land Unit 
boundaries and other data sets.  The 1 meter NAIP imagery is
generally acquired in projects covering full states in cooperation
with state government and other federal agencieswho use the
imagery for a variety of purposes including land use planning
and natural resource assessment.  With an annual cycle, NAIP
is also used for disaster response often providing the most 
current pre-event imagery.

Access_Constraints: There are no limitations for access.
Use_Constraints:
Imagery may be replaced to address defects found in a
small number of products through quality assurance
processes.  Imagery containing defects that require
the acquisition of new imagery, such as excessive
cloud cover, specular reflectance, etc., will not be
replaced within a NAIP project year.

Process_Description:
Digital frames captured with a ZI Intergraph DMC with a footprint of 7680 x 13824 
pixels were used to create Digital Orthophoto Quarter Quadrangles. DMC 
Serial Numbers  114, 137, and 142 installed in a Piper Cheyenne 1, Twin Cessna 
Turbo Charged 401, and Rockwell 695 Turbo Commander; N400CM, N34MM, 
and N9812S were used to fly. Calibration reports are on file with the USDA. 
12 micron frames were captured at eight bits with 2.5 - 2.7 foot pixel using 
Windows Server 2003; ZI Mission Planning 1.3; Intergraph GeoMedia 6.0; 
DMC Image Analyst 5.2;  DMC Post Processing 5.4; ZI Image Viewer 1.0;  
Microsoft Access; Microsoft Excel; Delorme XMap 4.5 and Adobe PhotoShop. 
Flights ASL was 18,000-20,000 or 28,900 feet.  The state was flown in 
blocks for efficiency of capture and in order to accommodate the different 
evations throughout the state.  Flight planning software includes Delorme 4.5; 
Delorme Photo Flight 2.1.6; ZI Inflight 1.3; ZI Imageview 1.2; ArcVew 3.2; 
Microsoft Access; and POSAV 2.1.  

Ground control points were collected by Photo Science crews.  
External Orientation files created from ABGPS data in Applanix 
POSPac MMS Version 5.2 and are rectified using ImageStation 
Project Manager 5.2; Intergraph GeoMedia 6.0; and Intergraph 
OrthoPro 5.2.  Extensive Quality Control checks are performed 
on the data throughout the production process.  Processed RAW 
Frames are checked forspectral compliance. Rectified frames are 
checked for spatial accuracy and also spectral compliance. DOQQs 
are thoroughly checked for spectral and spatial accuracy in Irs/C and 
Adobe PhotoShop. CCMs are checked for overall spectral compliance 
and spatial accuracy in ArcGIS. Seamline shapefiles are checked for 
gaps, slivers, overlaps and multipart features by building topology in ArcGIS. 
Ground control points are read off of rectified frames as a double-check 
and final DOQQs are used to calculate RMSE values in MicroStation 
and Excel.  Frames are rectified with 10 meter NEDs in Intergraph OrthoPro. 
This surface is checked for errors at the mosaicked DOQQ level.  
If any areas presented problems, they are noted in a Digital Elevation 
Model Errors ASCII text file.

Process_Description:
A compressed version of the NAIP TIFF imagery was created on behalf of the Arizona State Land Department by the US Forest Service (Albuquerque) using Lizard Tech GeoExpress software. The output resulted in 3-band MrSID (Gen III) files with a compression ratio of 1:15.
