Thousands of high resolution digital aerial images are available in our database since 2013.The user is able to browse familiar places and see how the landscape changed in the last 80 or 30 years. It is also possible to search in the archive images by topic, location, time or author.
Resolution and formats:
The resolution of digitized archive photos is over the highest detail of analogue photos for total quality. Thus the full size digital files might seem blurred in some cases, and the photographs are sharp in slightly smaller image size than the pixel resolution specified in the database. But some visual information reveals at the higher resolution, this is the photo's total value. (Mainly vegetation and land cover change analyzes require the highly detailed digitization.)Images are available as digital TIF format files (the resolution is indicated in the database).
Quality: some of the photos gathered from different collections are damaged, scratched, faded in the long storage and use. The damage types of these not-intact photographs were recorded in the database, and they are classified into different categories.
The classification of the photograph conditions:
Intact: The entire surface of the photograph is intact, there is no irretrievable damage, and the photo is sharp and well-exposed
Surface damage: The surface of the photograph is damag ed, stained or worn
Defective: A part of the photo is torn, broken and lost
Broken: The photograph is torn or broken but the entire surface can be reconstructed
Blurred: The focal length was incorrect or the camera was blurred or shaky
Light: The photo is overexposed
Dark: The photo is underexposed
