Description

APFO is home to one of the country's largest aerial film libraries. We currently house more than 70,000 rolls of film (10 million plus images). Our film dates from 1955 to the present. We have coverage of most of the United States and its territories. Historic aerial images play a more vital role today than ever before with environmental assessments, change detection, and property boundary disputes. The latest program is the National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP). APFO now provides NAIP digital imagery to the USDA Service Center Agencies that utilize Geographic Information Systems (GIS) as the method for administering federal farm programs. GIS streamlines daily operation and facilitates updates of vital information which also helps support our nation's farmers and ranchers.
