Aerial Imagery and Photography

Westmoreland Research has extensive knowledge of USAAF, RAF, and Luftwaffe aerial prints and negatives, as well as CIA, Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) images and collections from WWI to the present day. We also work with civilian agency collections of aerials documenting the United States and most other countries worldwide. In addition, we provide military and civilian photographic research and high-resolution duplication from the collections of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the Library of Congress, and other public and private collections.
