Access to Georgia County Aerial Photographs

Effective August 10, 2020, access to Georgia county aerial photographs must be requested and retrieved by MAGIL staff. This move is to ensure less wear and tear on the materials, some of which are in fragile condition.

We encourage researchers to plan ahead and view the county indexes available online through the Georgia Aerial Photography Index Collection in order to identify the specific photographs needed. Requests can be made via the Aerial Photograph Request Form and will be limited to one (1) location/address per request and five (5) requests per week (Monday-Friday). Requests can include multiple years.

If a digital photograph already exists, that will be provided in lieu of the physical item. MAGIL staff will not scan photos upon request. Researchers may bring their own scanner or use the flatbed scanner available in the GIS Lab.

Retrieved materials will be available at the MAGIL Desk under the requester’s name and date of visit.

Please note that the availability of an index is not an indicator that individual photographs are available for a particular county/year/location.
