Abstract:Since 2004 the University of Idaho (UI) Library has provided access through its geospatial data repository, INSIDE Idaho, to Idaho aerial imagery produced by the USDA Farm Service Agency's National Agricultural Imagery Program (NAIP). These efforts have been successful due to partnerships and collaborations forged through state-level working groups and committees. Recently, the 2015 Idaho NAIP imagery was provided through a partnership among UI, Idaho State University, Idaho National Laboratory, and Idaho State Geospatial Office. This paper describes the evolution of Idaho's NAIP imagery partnerships, procurement, management, accessibility, and technology between 2004 and 2015. While the technologies to handle both one-time access and also ongoing connections from web and mobile applications have changed dramatically over the years, the collaboration and partnerships have endured, and the story possesses implications for other land-grant universities.
