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.




Another 355,000 UK centre-points released

Over 455,000 not-yet-digitised aerial images of the UK can now be searched and ordered from our website. Each image is identified by a point on our map browser. These points show the locations of aerial survey photographs of places across the UK. Drawn from our Simmons Aerofilms, Airbus and UK Perspectives collections, the photographs date from the 1960's to the 2000's.


To search for photographs, Browse by Map and zoom to your area of interest. Find and click on the points to see the date and reference of each image. Click 'Buy' to order a copy at high resolution.


If you are not sure an image will completely cover your area of interest, add Image Verification to your order.
