Following the advice of UK and Scottish Governments, NCAP has now returned to limited operations in our offices.

We are now able to process orders for not-yet-digitised aerial imagery, to revised delivery timescales.

Essential Maintenance

HES is currently undertaking essential maintenance on our web services. This will limit access to services in the following ways:

- Subscription access for HES online services will be unavailable (Scran, NCAP)

- Image purchasing options will be limited (Canmore, Britain from Above, Scran, NCAP)

- Any enhanced services which require a log in will be unavailable (My Canmore, Britain from Above contributions, Scran contribute)


General access to these services will all continue. Enquiries will still be able to be submitted.

We anticipate services to be restored from Monday 1st February 2021.




Sorties with finding aids (43,801)

Finding aids are catalogued in several ways. For areas outside the UK, our finding aids are catalogued at 10-minute box level - this is a box of 10-minutes of latitude and longitude. For areas within the UK, finding aids are catalogued at polygon level - this is a shape showing the footprint of the whole sortie.
