Did you know that Esri hosts a set of image layers with recent 1m resolution, multispectral imagery for the continental United States? We’re happy to let you know that these layers now include the NAIP 2015 imagery for over half of the continental US. Over the last several weeks, we have been busy adding this imagery and making it available to you. Last week, we released our final installment of 2015 NAIP imagery and the image layers and maps now include new imagery for 27 states (shown below). You can discover and access these layers through the Living Atlas: Imagery collection as well as through the NAIP Imagery group.
The imagery is made available by the USDA Farm Service Agency. The National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) acquires aerial imagery during the agricultural growing seasons in the continental United States. The image layers published by Esri include all NAIP imagery since 2010 and provide access to imagery for each state in 4-bands (RGB and Near Infrared) with the option to display the imagery as false color or to display the NDVI showing relative biomass of an area.
The NAIP image layers are available to users with an ArcGIS Organizational subscription at no additional cost. To access the NAIP imagery maps and layers, you’ll need to sign in with an account that is a member of an organizational subscription. If you don’t already have an organizational subscription, you can create a new account and then sign up for a 60 day trial of ArcGIS Online.
