Historic Aerial Photos
Digital Data Services, Inc. offers millions of high-resolution, historic aerial photographs for the entire United States dating back to the late 1930’s. Historic photography is ideal for environmental engineering, ownership boundary determination, and legal presentations. Utilizing proprietary research tools, our knowledgeable staff will find the best photograph, scale and resolution that best fits your current needs. DDS, Inc. can provide either hard-copy prints or digital files of the photographs, and can also provide the additional service of georeferencing the imagery.
Submitting a Historic Aerial Photo Request
The easiest way to submit an aerial photo request would be through the DDS DataFinderTM application, which is located in the "Get a Quote" tab. Please note that we are searching against millions of records, so specific photo years are helpful along with a brief description of what you are trying to review from the imagery or the intended use. You may also provide us with latitude/longitude coordinates, GIS files, or an address with a buffer (e.g., 1 mile radius from the centerpoint), and we will research availability and scales.
