GeoSearch offers historical aerial photo coverage from our nationwide, in-house archive. We have compiled our archive from a combination of public and private aerial photography resources, and we are constantly adding to it.

In combination with other archival sources, historical aerial photos can assist in identifying former land uses for your site and surrounding areas. In some instances—commonly with rural sites—historical aerial photos may serve as the only documented source available. Historical aerial photos can be invaluable in any environmental site assessment.

The GeoSearch Historical Aerial Photos package includes digitally reproduced photos from each decade, typically beginning with the 1930s or 1940s through the present. Flight data, scale and source are provided for each aerial photo, and you can customize the scale on request. This option, which can be delivered electronically and digitally reproduced, includes:

  • Nationwide Coverage
  • Customizable Photo Scales
  • Photos for Large or Irregularly Shaped Sites (Optional)
  • Georeferenced Aerials (Optional)
  • Target Property Displayed on Aerials
