The Louisiana State University Cartographic Information Center currently holds 107,000 aerial photographs of Louisiana taken between 1939-1987. A fascinating collection, these photographs allow users to investigate both the historical and geographical changes throughout the state. If you are interested in the Mississippi Delta region, the loss of coastal lands, or any other number of subjects this collection should prove quite useful. While the collection holds over 100,000 photographs, only 5,000 have been digitized and made available here. Areas covered in this core group represent the major metropolitan areas of Louisiana including East and West Baton Rouge Parish and Orleans Parish. Visitors can search by creator, subject, and title or they can just browse the collection as a whole.
