                        Ortho Imagery - State and locally acquired and
                                      satellite imagery

              I. Purpose and Scope (business case)

              A. Purpose

                   These products are used for CLU digitizing and boundary maintenance, Farm
                   Program administration, conservation planning and Soil Survey production.

                   Standard sources for ortho imagery used in USDA Service Center Agencies
                   (SCA) include the National Agricultural Imagery Program (NAIP) and the
                   National Digital Ortho Photography Program (NDOP). Non-standard sources
                   include state and locally acquired ortho-imagery and satellite imagery that is
                   acquired and ortho rectified to meet USDA SCA standards and accuracy
                   specifications.

                   The goal is to meet Service Center standards. Alternative, non-standard sources
                   such as state and locally acquired or satellite imagery may be the best available.

                   State and local data are generally acquired in non USDA SCA standard format.
                   Non SCA standard ortho imagery acquired through state and local partnerships
                   will be managed within the local service center folder structure. There is no
                   intent to manage state and locally acquired imagery in the Geospatial Data
                   Warehouse for availability for web services (data streaming) and distribution
                   through the Gateway for USDA agencies. Public access may be restricted.

                   Satellite imagery can be delivered to a Service Center in a standard format such
                   as MrSID. License restrictions may apply.

              B. Scope

                   The scope is on a project-by-project basis that includes the United States and
                   territories serviced by FSA and/or NRCS.

                  NRCS Specifications

              1) Minimum ortho imagery resolution for USDA-NRCS programs are one meter
                 Ground Sample Distance (GSD).
              2) Data Quality – All other ortho imagery resolutions must meet the accuracy
                 standards as published in the” United States National Map Accuracy Standards”
                 (NMAS) as listed at the following address.
                 http://rockyweb.cr.usgs.gov/nmpstds/nmas.html . Higher resolution datasets ( 6
                 inch, 2 feet etc..) can be used when available if ortho imagery data meets the
                 National Map Accuracy standards for horizontal and vertical accuracy at
                 1:24,000 or higher.
              3) NRCS will receive the highest resolution ortho imagery data sets from data
                 producers.
              4) Data delivered to the USDA-NCGC must be full resolution, uncompressed data
                 in one of the following data formats (DOQ Keyword, GeoTIF)
              5) Imagery data must be within +/- 10 meters of the first generation DOQ’s for
                 90% of the points tested.
              6) Testing of locally acquired and satellite ortho imagery data for SCA will be
                 coordinated between APFO and the NCGC.
              7) Ortho imagery data will be made available via the GDW except where user
                 restrictions apply.
              8) Data producer will provide an ArcInfo format vector file (Shapefile) with
