Welcome to the Aerial Photography portion of our web page. One of the ongoing projects we would
like you to know about is the collaboration of the
Digital Library and the Map & Imagery Library
to digitize the Map Library's entire aerial photography collection. It is a huge undertaking,
considering we have approximately 266,500 aerials to be digitized. We consider it well worth the effort
because of the tremendous amount of information that will be made available to the public.
HERE for access to the
aerial photography imagery for Florida.
Please direct inquiries concerning that site to the Digital Library.
The aerial photography in the Map & Imagery Library is almost exclusively of Florida. There is a
small amount of overlap at the Florida state line. The counties for Florida are listed below. Please click on the county for specific dates
and photo numbers available for that county.

are organized by county, then date, then photo number. Section, township, and range are not
for locating aerial photos. When visiting the Map & Imagery Library, a patron can
find the area they need by looking at an aerial index.
There is a separate index for each
county/ date, with different photo numbers for each. By looking at the index, patrons
can find the photo
number that corresponds with their area of interest. The county
lists above enumerate the available aerial
photos in the Map & Imagery Library. If a photo number is listed, patrons
directly to the file cabinets containing the aerial photos for that county. If the photo number is not
listed, we do not have that specific photo and the photo above, beneath, or to either side
might overlap and include the site that the
patron is interested in. Looking at the same site, but at a different date, might also be helpful.
**Please Note**Because these aerials do not use a specific method to identify an area (such as
township, range, and section, or latitude and longitude) the Map & Imagery Library is regretfully
unable to perform research requests. Map Library staff are more than happy to provide any
assistance a patron might need in learning how to use the aerial photo collection, but the patron
must be present to positively identify the area themselves.

The Map & Imagery Library does not sell aerial photos. Copies may be made by the methods listed
below under Copies. Aerial photos for the United States may be purchased
Aerial Photography Field Office (APFO) in Salt Lake City,
Utah. APFO's photos start around the mid to late 1950's and continue on to the present. Older aerial
photography may be obtained from the National Archives in
Washington D.C.. Local aerial photography (Florida) may be found at an areas
Water Management District,
or the DOT. Another resource
for aerial photos is Terraserver.
Terraserver's aerials are viewable online, as well as available for purchase. Please note that these lists
are provided in support of the information needs of library users and not intended in any way

There are several methods of making copies of aerial photos:
*Make arrangements with
(The Office of Academic Technology) to take photographs of the Map & Imagery Library's
photos. To start, the patron will select the aerials to be copied from the Map & Imagery Library.
After financial arrangements have been made with OAT, OAT will request that
the selected aerial photos be sent over. Pricing and the time required
to make reproductions is controlled by OAT. Once the copies have been made, OAT will contact the patron.
*Photocopies. For more information on photocopying
please proceed to this page: http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/printing/
*The Map & Imagery Library has 2 scanners, both with
11 X 17 inch capability. Scanner use is free, though patrons must log on to a computer with their Gatorlink
user name and password. Computers are equipped with CD burners and USB ports.
*Cameras are also allowed within the Map Library, and may be used to record images.
