The Map and Government Information Library maintains a large collection of aerial photography of the State of Georgia, consisting of over 240,000 photographs from the late 1930s through the early 1990s. The aerial photographs in the collection were produced by a variety of state and federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Geological Survey.
In this guide you will find Information on how to request photos from our collection, where to find our digitized indexes, and how to find a photo of your site of interest. Use the Sources for Air Photos and Related Collections tab to browse online resources for aerial photos and satellite imagery. The UGA's ASCS Inventory tab is a table of our holdings for photos by county; you can use this tab to determine if we are likely to have the photo that you are looking for in our collection.
Our aerial photos by county are available by request only. Photos in our physical collection can be viewed in MAGIL and scanned using our flatbed scanner. Any of our digitized photos will be provided in lieu of a physical copy and the file will be sent to the provided email. Please view our full policies regarding aerial photo access.
You can request photos from our collection via a request form, online or at our service desk.
Please keep in mind that we do not have every photo for every year and just because we have the index, doesn’t necessarily mean we have photos for that year.
The Georgia Aerial Photograph Index Collection provides access to digital versions of all county indexes in MAGIL’s physical collection.
