The Aerial Reconnaissance Archives
Cartographers and historians alike will be interested in The Aerial Reconnaissance Archives:
Evidenceincamera has been created by The Aerial Reconnaissance Archives (TARA) at Keele University. Our aim is to make the aerial reconnaissance photographs, deposited by the UK Ministry of Defence at TARA, accessible via the internet.Unanticipated levels of traffic to the site have forced the temporary closure of the archive, although they are working to bring the site up in the near future.
During World War II, photgraphic reconnaissance played a major part in the intelligence war. The advanced photographic techniques developed, gave intelligence officers the ability to view the enemies activities in 3D, and make highly accurate assessments.
