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.




National Archives and Records Administration (NARA)

NCAP has partnered with the US National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) to digitise and disseminate records from NARA Record Group 373. This includes 40,000 rolls of aerial photography taken during the Second World War.

All of the images digitised will be made accessible on our website and can be zoomed and panned with a website subscription. Our digitisation unit in Maryland, USA, copies thousands of images every month. This gallery features some of the most striking images digitised to date.
