Our Digitisation Programme


Work continues daily to ensure more NCAP aerial imagery is made accessible online.  This work is funded by website subscriptions and involves extensive preservation, cataloguing and digitisation of original aerial photographs, finding aids and rolls of film.  


Our 2019-2020 digitisation programme includes:

  • Over 50,000 aerial images from the US National Archives, covering locations around the world from 1940-1945
  • Over 400,000 aerial image locations from the Simmons Aerofilms and Airbus collections, covering the UK from 1965-2001
