These Alabama County aerial photography DVD
contains natural color 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 ortho imagery within one year of acquisition. This NAIP product
provides 2 meter (Resolution) GSD ortho imagery rectified to within
+/- 10 meters of reference DOQQs. 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. This file was generated by compressing
NAIP quarter quadrangle tiles that cover a county. MrSID
compression, with mosaic option, was used. Target values for the
compression ratio are (15:1) and the maximum zoom levels are used.
Be aware that the interim compressed county
mosaic may contain defects and have horizontal accuracy less than
the above specified tolerances.
Imagery has been provided by
the USDA-FSA Aerial Photography Field Office.(APFO), National
Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP).
