Abstract These data are compressed county or half-county mosaics of digital, natural-color aerial photographs of Montana taken during the year 2005. The imagery has a 1 meter ground sample distance and are orthorectified to National Mapping Standards at the 1:24,000 scale. The imagery is formatted to the UTM coordinate system using NAD83. The files were generated by compressing quarter quadrangle tiles that cover a county or half of a county to one fifteenth of their storage size with MrSID software.An Esri shapefile showing the dates of the aerial photos is available at https://ftpgeoinfo.msl.mt.gov/Data/Spatial/MSDI/Imagery/2005_NAIP/naip_2005_color_dates.zipEach county mosaic is several gigabytes in size and contains large no-data areas for regions inside each county's bounding rectangle but outside the county boundary. The data are also available as non-overlapping 12-kilometer tiles and as a web service. A false color infrared version of the data is available. Please see http://geoinfo.msl.mt.gov/data/Aerial_Photos/NAIP_2005 for access to these alternate forms of the data.
Purpose These data sets contains digital ortho-imagery developed to support planning and delivery of USDA programs. The USDA field service centers use digital ortho imagery as a basic reference for conservation plans and soil survey.
