Johnson County Museum Aerial Photographs

Overview

A Collection of more than 8,000 color slide transparencies that are aerial views of Johnson County. The collection consists of 45 dated sets. The sets range in quantity from just a few transparencies to several hundred. The sets were typically taken twice a year, in the spring and fall, to document agricultural landuse. Each transparency centers on two square miles.

To date over 8,000 of these images have been scanned and posted on jocohistory.org. But additional information is needed to make this collection a better resource for the community. Volunteers who are willing to donate their time to verify direction, locations and identify key landmarks and roads are needed. Once this critical information has been updated in the records, the collection itself will be a phenomenal resource to document the county's incredible growth during this time period.

The sets date from April 1980 to July 2002 and each set systematically documents the county from west to east. A familiarity with Johnson County over the past 25 years would be of great assistance and minor typing/computer skills are needed for this project. Information may be submitted directly through the comments field on each record of jocohistory.org, or you may volunteer your time at the Johnson County Museum to directly enter this information into the database.
