To submit an Historical Imagery request…. Order Data
Customers can preform a cursory search of the the TNRIS Historic photo archive by using the data download web application.
Select the county you are interested in researching.
The map will zoom to the selected county. Directly under the map you will see a list of years the data is available for the selected county.
The list can be expanded to show more detail about the data's available years, e.g. source, year, media type.
When the Research and Distribution Center (RDC) staff receives the order, the site will be located by loading the Area of Interest and determine the county, if needed. The researcher will choose the best collection (quality and most complete) from the archives and use a photo or map index to determine the exact frames.
Customers will be contacted and provided with a detailed explanation about the size and scope of the research.
To continue with the order, the RDC staff will select the frames needed.
