by 2 New Layers Added - (Crops 2011, 2012)

Two new layers have been added to the IndianaMap viewer, named "Crops 2011" and "Crops 2012" which are found under the "Environment" folder. These data show categorized land-cover data produced using satellite imagery for the purpose of providing supplemental acreage estimates for major crop commodities in Indiana for the 2011 and 2012 growing seasons. They were obtained from the "Cropscape" Website hosted by the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS).

Additionally, the REST services for older crop data layers from 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2006 have been removed from the map viewer. However, if you wish to download these data for the older years, they are still available from the IndianaMap Layer Gallery.

Further, the broken links that users reported for accessing downloads and metadata for the 2009 and 2010 crop data layers have been restored.
