Directory of Collections

Call for Historical and Archived Collections

The Data Preservation and Archiving Committee is assembling a directory of resources for historic and archived collections of aerial photography, satellite imagery, and related datasets. The directory will include information on the archiving organization (including contact, address, phone, fax, email), contents of the collection (date, scale, type of photo / imagery), how to access the collection, associated fees, and other pertinent information. This resource is a valuable aide to scientists, researchers, students, consultants, attorneys, and the public. It will also be useful to people and organizations that have historic data and do not maintain an archive, but would like to contribute their data to an archiving source. The directory will be posted on the Internet through the ASPRS Home Page.

If you are a collector of historic geospatial data, or your organization archives these data, we would like to include you in the directory. Please provide information using the form at this link: You may submit your information electronically using this form, or send it by mail or fax to:
