NAIP imagery acquisition for Indiana is being planned by FSA for 2016. The NAIP acquires digital ortho imagery during the agricultural growing seasons in the contiguous U.S (lower 48 states). It is intended to provide current information of agricultural conditions in support of USDA farm programs. The NAIP imagery may contain as much as 10% cloud cover per tile. NAIP imagery is generally acquired in projects covering full states, and is typically available for distribution within 60 days of the end of a flying season. NAIP provides 1-meter ground sample distance (GSD) ortho imagery or optional (with partner buy-up) 1/2-meter GSD ortho imagery, with a horizontal accuracy of +/- 6 meters to true ground. The data deliverables consist of DOQQ tiles and Compressed County Mosaics formatted to the UTM coordinate system using the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD83).
Partner Buy-up Option for 2016: The estimated cost for IN ½ meter statewide is around $88,064.75. If your organization is interested in funding the 2016 ½ meter buy-up for Indiana please contact Phil Worrall at IGIC (firstname.lastname@example.org) and contact Bridget at FSA here.
