Project Description:
The Wyoming Geographic Information Science Center (WyGISC)'s main objective was to provide the public with the ability to download the 2015 National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) photography on a USGS quadrangle basis. In order to accomplish this task it was necessary for WyGISC to mosaic all four uncompressed DOQQs for each quadrangle and then clip these data to the extent of the representing USGS quadrangle. Additionally, for distribution purposes each new quadrangle image needed to be in a compressed image format and then packaged with the necessary metadata and projection files. Once this process was completed for all of the 1938 quadrangles covering Wyoming, it was necessary to create an application to aid in data access.
