INTERIM 2005 National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) County Compressed Mosaics
The California Resources Agency, Caltrans, Coastal Conservancy, Department of Conservation,
California Energy Commission, and Department of Water Resources have partnered with the U. S.
Department of Agriculture (Farm Service Agency, Natural Resources Conservation Service, and Forest Service),
U. S. Geological Survey, and U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service to acquire one-meter color Digital
Orthophoto Quarter Quads (DOQQs) for the entire State of California. This is the first time that
California has acquired one-meter natural DOQQs statewide in a single "season"/year. The Interim
2005 County compressed (15:1) mosaics are in MrSID format. Each folder contains the MrSID mosaics,
metadata, and shapefiles showing the footprints of the DOQQs used in the mosaics. Note that some large
counties are broken into more than one folder because the images were too large to fit on a single DVD.
These are "Interim" products because the full resolution DOQQs used for the mosaics are still undergoing
quality assurance/quality control and the final mosaics may be adjusted for improved DOQQ and color balance
quality. We are providing free access to these products via the California Spatial Information Library
(CaSIL). To order these mosaics on DVD from USDA, Aerial Photography Field Office, please go to
http://www.apfo.usda.gov/NAIP.html. Sometime later in the year we will be providing Internet access to
the final county compressed mosaics and the more than 10,000 full resolution DOQQs covering California.
(From USDA, APFO) Please note: The 'interim' compressed county mosaic (CCM) product has been created to
provide timely information for the Farm Service Agency's compliance program. FSA is distributing the interim
product ONLY with the understanding the images have not yet undergone FSA's comprehensive quality assurance
inspection process, which may require corrections and possible replacement of the imagery. Buyer should be
aware that the purchased interim CCM may be incomplete, may contain defects, and may have horizontal accuracy
less than the specified tolerances. In addition, modifications are actively being made to these data, and new
versions are being submitted. CaSIL maintains only the most current interim versions of the data. See the ChangeLog
for indications when changes have been made. The 'FINAL' CCM product may be purchased upon completion of the
