The USDA has posted the National Agriculture Imagery Program's (NAIP) 2007 MrSid Orthophoto Mosaics from the Farm Service Agency's (FSA) Aerial Photography Field Office onto the Geospatial Data Gateway.
The 2007 update includes several Florida Counties: Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Clay, Dixie, Duval, Flagler, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Levy, Madison, Marion, Nassau, Putnam, St. Johns, Suwannee, Taylor, Union, and Volusia.
Per the Geospatial Data Gateway's website, the site "provides easy and consistent access to natural resource data. You can search for available data by geographic area such as county or state, use our point and click map tool to find your area of interest; using a gazetteer, or by entering latitude and longitude coordinates. You can also search for data by theme, such as digital ortho imagery, digital elevation models (DEMs), or soils. You can then view a thumbnail, or sample of the data you've chosen to know if you want a copy of the data. If you do, you can either download the data directly onto your machine, pick it up via our ftp site, or order it on media such as CD."
