Looking for temporal data about New York State landscapes? IRIS recently initiated a project for the conversion of its historic aerial photographic collection from analog to digital form. Data covering a number years for several counties can now be accessed on-line at Cornell University's Olin Library. Additional data will be added as funds become available.
