    The aerial photo lookup assists users in the research of hard-copy historical aerial photos. These are not orthophotos. See Orthophoto Imagery for information on digital ortho-photography and availability of online orthophotos.

    The aerial photo database only contains information pertaining to photo flight years between 1946 and 2003.

    You can look up aerial photos two ways.
