The resolution is primarily 1-meter, and the source imagery is acquired through partnerships with U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency and other cooperating Federal, State, and local agencies through the National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP). One meter resolution imagery means that each pixel in the orthoimage covers one meter on the earth’s surface. [...]
