Overview

Mapbox NAIP is a Mapbox-provided raster tileset that includes an aerial imagery layer covering 48 states in the contiguous United States. This imagery is especially suited for our outdoors, agriculture, and recreation users, updating pixels in even the most remote areas.

Data sources

The imagery in this tileset is from the United States Department of Agriculture’s National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP). NAIP is open data collected at 60 cm every 2 to 3 years, and 2018–2019 data is available nearly everywhere, including the most remote areas.

You can view the dates of NAIP images in this NAIP Dates map.
