Hawaii Digital Aerial Photos Available

From our Maps & GIS Librarian, G. Salim Mohammed:

Our entire digital aerial photograph collection, consisting of 7,000 images of Hawai’i taken between 1950-2000 is now available for viewing and download at the MAGIS (Maps, Aerials and GIS) Web site:


The photographs are organized by county and then by island within each county. Coverage denotes the approximate area where the photograph lies within the USGS quadrangle (1:24,000) of the same name.

Most of the aerial photographs were taken by USGS and USDA, we also have a few flightlines and corresponding photographs from NOAA.

A jpeg version is available for free download.  However, should you need a high resolution image, please let us know.  All we need is the unique identifier located in the metadata section, next to the thumbnail view..
