Aerial Photography

Looking for aerial photography? Mapping Sciences keeps indexes of aerial photography taken as early as the 1940s and as late as last year. Select a District on the online map to see the project area footprints for most of the photography that has been flown in the District since the 1960s. A few of our recent projects have links which allow you to view the indexes in detail or view the photos as scanned images.
