Aerial Photography in Illinois

Available Coverage

The Aerial Surveys Section maintains a film library dating back to its inception. During that time, over 8000 projects have been flown at various scales and covering various areas throughout the state. In addition, high altitude photographic coverage of nearly the entire state is available from a series of late 1960’s, late 1970’s, 1988, 1993/94 and 1998/99 and 2005 photography. Although the vast majority of this photography is in black and white, there are a limited number of projects which have been flown in color or color infrared. Most of the photography can be enlarged up to nearly 20 times the original scale and can be printed in a variety of sizes ranging from 10”x10” to 40”x70”.
