Aerial Photography Index and General Publication Sales Information

The New Orleans District Corps of Engineers maintains an extensive aerial photography collection in contact print and film negative format, as well as scanned digital photo files. The Corps acquires this photography in the course of performing our missions of flood control, navigation, and environmental engineering. See background for a more detailed discussion of the photo collection process.

The Photo Index
The photo missions are grouped in date-order under each quadrangle map in which they have some percent of coverage. The USGS topographic 15 minute quadrangle maps of Louisiana are listed alphabetically. The index available on this homepage is to provide an idea of photo coverage as it relates to each quadrangle map. Library personnel will perform a more roll and photo specific automated search upon the receipt of a request. Please contact Library personnel to view and/or obtain actual photographs, and for the most recent photo data.

Information About Photo Reproduction Service and Publications
We require that requests for publications and/or aerial photography be made in writing. Requests can be drafted in person or sent by letter or fax on our request form. In all cases we require an attachment that clearly delineates with a box or circle the limits of the photo coverage desired. See detail page for work flow explaination and delivery time estimate.
