2006 NAIP Data Distribution Applications

2006 NAIP Data Distribution Applications

Project Dates: 1 September 2007 - 28 February 2009

Funding Sponsor: U.S. Geological Survey

Principal Investigator: Jim Oakleaf

Other Personnel: Shawn Lanning, Teal Wyckoff

Project Summary:

The Wyoming Geographic Information Science Center (WyGISC) main objective for this grant was to provide the public with the ability to download the 2006 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. All of the above-mentioned steps were completed within the last year and half with access to these data available through the WyGISC Imagery Server
