image acquisition lessons learned
Image Acquisition – Lessons Learned
  • Early contract award (or fall acquisition) optimal for success of southern flight (is it possible to reliably meet APFO’s mandate?)
  • Having a neighboring state to fly helps with efficiencies
  • Summer haze and low pressure cycles not conducive to high altitude acquisition over large areas
  • Early spring and fall best acquisition times
  • Turbulence - Aircraft gets a good shaking - Necessary for multiple redundancy onboard disc backup (MM40)
  • Don’t try to fly near prominent elected officials
recommendations
Recommendations
  • In the south, look at ways to satisfy the APFO without fighting nature. Does early spring or fall photo come close to meeting the crop compliance mandate?
  • Continue to work towards a consistent delivery acceptance criteria
  • Support any non proprietary formats

“NAIP 2005 Recommendations”

  • Image Specifications: Continue to work on the definition of acceptable imagery - especially for 1m states.
  • Result: Contractors understand the expectations of the USDA and their partners.
  • Image QC and Acceptance: Further share APFO QC tools and procedures with contractors, so that they are used to check products prior to shipment.
  • Result: Product acceptance is standardized, first-time acceptance rates will increase and the burden on APFO QC staff is lessened.
  • Contractor Feedback: Continue to provide performance feedback to contractors on an individual basis.
  • Result: Contractors can continue to improve performance.
