Oregon Historical County Records Guide

Marion County Records Inventory

Aerial Photographs


Series provides visual documentation of changes made to county lands through development and by natural and man-made disasters. The photographs are taken at intervals along a series of flight paths to attain coverage of all or part of a county. They generally include flight path or township, range, and section numbers; show natural and man-made features; and are produced in black and white or color prints to varying scales. An index by quadrant may also be included.

The searchable GIS database Survey Graphic Index includes digital images of survey plats, road survey plats, subdivision and partition plats, aerial photographs, assessor's maps, as well as corner monumentation and other information. The searchable GIS database My Community Internet Mapper includes aerial photographs. The University of Oregon, Map & Aerial Photography Library Aerial Photograph Collection includes aerial photographs from most Oregon counties.
