  • Abstract
    The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Aerial Photography data set is a film archive of photographs from the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston, Texas, and the NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California. In 1965, the JSC initiated the Earth Resources Aircraft Program and began flying photographic missions for Federal Government agencies and other entities involved in remote sensing experiments. Beginning in 1966, NASA conducted an Earth Observations Program, including Earth surveys using aircraft platforms. Photographs from a variety of NASA programs provide project-specific coverage over the United States, Grand Bahama, Jamaica, and Central America at base scales ranging from 1:16,000 scale to 1:450,000 scale. Film types, scales, acquisition schedules, flight altitudes, and end products differ, according to project requirements.
