Package Contents

The following data is available for download:

AGRC has statewide National Agricultural Imagery Program (NAIP) aerial photography for Utah. The imagery is 1-meter resolution and was collected in the summer of 2016. Although the NAIP imagery collection is typically 4-band imagery, we have separated the Red, Green, and Blue bands from the Infrared band. To merge the RGB images with the single infrared band to create a 4-band image you can use the ArcGIS Composite Bands (Data Management) tool, the Image Analysis window to add a Function Chain, or create a Reference Mosaic. 3-band Mr. Sid county mosaics are also available.

The date the photography was flown can be found in the SrcImgDate field of the NAIP2016 Index shapefile, in the .txt metadata files after Calendar_Date, or the SDATE field of the county mosaics shapefile. The images have a UTM NAD83 meters projection.

AGRC has National Agricultural Imagery Program (NAIP) natural color aerial photography for many of the agricultural areas of Utah in 2-meter resolution for 2003 and 1-meter resolution for 2004 and 2006. The 2006 NAIP is a statewide coverage. The images are grouped together by county. They can be downloaded as a .zip file. The .zip file contains a compressed .sid Mr.Sid image. When adding the image to a View or Data Frame, add the .sid file and not the associated bands. The date the photography was flown for 2003 can be found in the .txt file of county mosaic. For 2004 the date is in the IDAT field of the compressed county mosaic index. For the 2006 imagery the NAIP2006 Index shapefile or the .txt file of the associated image quarter quad .tif image tile contain the date the image was flown. The images have a UTM NAD83 meters projection. TFW worldfiles can be downloaded from the FTP site.
