An aerial photo is any photograph taken from the air. Most aerial photographs in the UCSC collection are vertical images (straight down) and most flights include stereo pairs. 

Search through our Flight Index Database to find Index Maps covering your geographic area of interest. Use the Index Maps to further identify particular photos to view online (if available) or by appointment in the library.
