Planners, geographers, historians, and environmental scientists all relish the possibilities inherent in a good set of aerial photographs. Such photos can inform curious parties about land use change, ground cover, riverine geography, and a number of other topics. This collection from the Kansas State University Libraries is just the perfect resource to explore these matters. The user interface for the site is quite elegant, and visitors can click on an interactive map of Kansas counties to get started. Tabs along the top of the site allow users to navigate through time, from the pre-1950 period all the way up to the 1970s. Visitors can also use the toggle feature on the right-hand side of the page to look at selected counties. The embedded image viewing software lets users zoom in and out, affording them an excellent detailed view of each area.
