The Aerial Photography Field Office (APFO) has a vast amount of aerial imagery of most of the United States and its territories, with dates from 1955 to the present. Our data bundle is downloaded directly from the website and includes 2010 data over 30 states, 10 states dating 2009, and the rest dating 2008. In cases like Alaska where NAIP data is only available for certain areas, we substitute DOQQ quadrangle aerials. The seamless images are created from orthoimages that have been mosaicked to show a continuous photographic map of a larger area. The orthoimagery component of The National Map is a standard seamless product with a 1 meter or finer pixel resolution and a 1,500-m x 1,500-m to 3,000-m x 3,000-m footprint. The images are georeferenced to NAD83 (North AMerican Datum 1983) and are in UTMn (Northern Uniform Transverse Mercator). The National Map is continually maintained and provides the most recent high resolution orthoimagery data through 2011.
