Aerial Photographs of Arkansas

County sets, 1980-

Manuscript collections MC 735, 889, 935, 1080


The Collection

In October, 1987,an ongoing donation of aerial photographs, organized in sets by county, was initiated with the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department, Little Rock, Arkansas. In the future, additional sets of aerial photographs will be donated to Special Collections as the sets become outdated for highway department purposes.

Each year the highway department has new sets of aerial photographs produced for approximately eight counties in the state (Arkansas has 75 counties). Current aerial photographs are required for the highway department's planning needs, so the superseded prints are no longer used. The Special Collections Department of the University Libraries, University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, will serve as the repository for the superseded photographic prints. The film negatives, however, remain with the highway department. Eventually the aerial photographic coverage available in Special Collections will be complete for the entire state and will represent various dates for each county according to the highway department's schedule of aerial photograph production.

The photographs are 10" x 10" black and white photographic prints, providing coverage at the scale of 1:20,000. The photographs are arranged according to flightline patterns. For each county, the flightlines and photo numbers along the flightlines have been drawn as a flightline index map for which the county general highway map serves as a base.

Each county set of aerial photographs has been organized into folders by flightline and photo numbers. A copy of the flightline index map is in the first folder for each county set. An additional flightline index map for each county (with all the photo numbers noted and missing photographs indicated) is available separately as part of the finding aid.
