Looking for Historic Aerials?

A nice data tip comes our way from LizardTech a really cool historical aerials site hosted by NETR online (A Division of National Environmental Title Research, LLC). With the help of GeoExpress and Express Server NETR was able to publish aerials showing off different locations in the U.S. Some of the locations have data from several different years going back as far as the 1930s, so you can see the difference at any given location over time. Chack out San Diego in 1964, or fly to RFK stadium - See http://www.historicaerials.com

There's also 2 cool features, dissolve- which fades from one year to another, and Compare Two Years"- which allows you to use a slider to compare the same area over 2 different years.
