Beginning in 2012, local county governments working with MCCRSGIS members and partially funded by MDOT and USGS produced local, high-resolution leaf off (January - March) imagery in a consistent format for their local needs. Dependent on the county, resolution of the imagery was higher in the metro areas than in the rural areas.
Color orthoimagery were produced 8-bit per channel, resulting in 32-bit RGB, .tif/.tfw format with a pixel size of 6in (3 inch, 6 inch or 12 inch - dependent on county). Ortho tiles were generated according to the pre-approved County orthoimagery tile layout, with tiles 5,000' X 5,000'. Orthoimages were compressed on a County basis to .sid/.sdw format at a 20:1 compression ratio to develop an MrSID format mosaic.

Directories are now named with year of photography. Some counties have multiple years of imagery.
Color Infrared county files from this data are now available using Bands 4,1,2 from the 4-Band tiffs. NAIP 2016 tiffs were used for George, Harrison, Yalobusha, Tate, and Benton. These counties have no 4-Band local high resolution tiffs. Download
The 4-Band uncompressed .tiffs are now available via download. The tiffs are organized by year
