The Historic Photographs Collection includes approximately 13,000 photographs and slides in this collection were taken during the course of geologic, mineral resource, and geologic hazard investigations carried out by Division of Geology and Mineral Resources’ geoscientists beginning in the first half of the 20th century. The collection includes images of important rock outcrops that demonstrate key features of stratigraphic units, fossils indicative of the age of rock formations, outcrop-scale geologic structures such as faults and folds, economically significant minerals and mine sites, and geologic hazards such as landslides and sinkholes. Slides and photographs are available online in JPG format. High resolution...

The UGS Aerial Imagery Collection contains aerial photography of Utah originally taken from 1935 to the present, and includes over 125,000 frames and associated indexes, orthophotomaps (semi-controlled orthophotos), and other materials. Aerial photographs are highly sought after for use in geologic, geotechnical, and environmental investigations to document geologic hazards, land-use, geomorphologic, and other changes that may have occurred in a particular area, along with mapping geology, cultural, and vegetation features. The collection contains scanned images of aerial photograhs of Utah and a 0.2 degree buffer beyond the boundaries of Utah from 1935 to the present. Imagery indexes are available in the UGS...

This collection includes field photographs taken by geologists. Various educational photographs in this collection have been used for public presentations. Most photographs are in possession of geologists who took the photos. The collection includes many film transparencies. Geologists now take digital photos, which are not included in this collection. This collection has not yet been cataloged. Please contact the Arizona Geological Survey to inquire about this collection.

This collection includes aerial photographs of Arizona. Some photos are as old as 1936 and are of various sizes and scales. The photos are stored in file folders or envelopes, generally containing one flight line. There are numerous other groups of photos not in envelopes, totaling about 2800 additional photos. This collection has not yet been cataloged. Please contact the Arizona Geological Survey to inquire about this collection.

This series consists of photographic prints and negatives taken by Florida Geological Survey photographers to document Florida geological and archeological sites. Images include fossil and mineral specimens, examples of stratigraphic layers and land formations, and mining sites and equipment. The physical collection of historical photos is housed in the FGS library, the prints are stored in archival envelops in a file cabinet. This collection has been digitized and is available via the web. The collection includes lantern slides, 35mm photographs and black and white negatives. The Florida Geological Survey has a second informal collection of digital images taken by staff geologists over the past 10 years, which...

Guy Atlee lived and worked in the Kingman area working the Turquoise mine (Mineral Park) and other mines near Chloride (IXL, Wrigley), Cerbat, and Kingman. He is known to have worked and traveled in the Victorville, Topock and other areas of California. Guy’s wife was Rose Atlee and they had a large family. The collection includes images of mines and workings as well as many images depicting daily life in Mohave County. The photos appear to cover a period from about the turn of the century through the 1920s.

Photographs and slides of Idaho's geology, rocks, landforms, mines, abandoned mines, and other features of geological interest. Photographs and Slides of Idaho's Geology, Mines, and Abandoned Mines. Although the number of IGS photographs and slides continues to increase, there is at present no cataloging system to document the bulk of these photos and slides. The exception to this is a pilot project that is attempting to link the abandoned mine lands photographs to the mines and prospects database, and to catalogue the photographs using numbers based on the database number of the property they document. A database of the rest of the photographs and slides needs to be developed.

These photographs were mostly taken from the Arizona Department of Mines and Mineral Resources (ADMMR) Mining collection, records on mineral resource exploration and mining in Arizona from late 1800s to the early 2000s. Photographs principally relate to a mineral locality reported in the Arizona Mineral Industry Location System. Photographs titled "ADMMR" document the history of the Arizona Department of Mines and Mineral Resources, making up a little over 10 percent of the collection. Items were arranged alphabetically by prints and negatives, then slides and lastly Polaroids. The hyphenated number at the end of each title refers to the old numbering system employed by our dedicated volunteers and should not be...

This inventory describes photos taken by A. L. Flagg during his travels as a mining engineer over the period 1905 to 1955 and they capture life in developing western North America. The photographs were largely identified using notes made by A.L. Flagg, research of Arizona Department of Mines and Mineral Resources' (ADMMR) mine files and mining periodicals of the time. Principle photograph locations are in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Rhode Island, and Washington along with Durango and Oaxaca, Mexico. Arthur Leonard Flagg was born June 29, 1883, the son of Charles Welford and Anna R. (Daley) Flagg. He earned his bachelor’s degree in geology at Brown University in 1906. As a young mining engineer Arthur Flagg followed...

Collection of paper aerial photographs and a few negatives. Most have been donated and the original sources include U. S. Geological Survey, U. S. Forest Service, U. S. Bureau of Land Management, Nevada Department of Transportation, U. S. Soil Conservation Service, U. S. Army Map Service, U. S. Air Force, MX Project, and private companies. Some were flown for the University of Nevada, Reno, and NBMG projects. The exact amount is unknown and is probably between 200,000 and 500,000. The collection is largely indexed by the organization that flew the photos and then by project. Aerial Photograph Collection Most of the projects are not complete. Most of the photographs are indexed by an assortment of paper indexes...

Photographs and slides in the library and in the publications section. Photographs and Slides, physical and digital. Approximately 2000 historic photo prints in the library are cataloged on cards; most of these have also have been scanned. However this is probably less than 1% of the collection. Some of the collection (both physical and digital) are organized by event or location. Several years ago an unsuccessful attempt was made to start a digital catalog. Staff and budget limitations may prevent cataloging for the foreseeable future.

These photographs are from turn of the century. Mr. Osborn was the photographer. Most of the photographs are from the Ajo area of Arizona. The photographs depict mines, workings, buildings and families of the workers. This collection has not yet been cataloged. Please contact the Arizona Geological Survey to inquire about this collection.

Photographs were taken of core samples for some of the older construction projects; more recently digital photos are being taken for rotosonic work. The photograph collection is housed in the library, overseen by Mary Lydon, at the main facility in Chelsea. The photograph collection held by the Massachusetts Water Resource Authority is from photographs of core samples and related work (drilling). The non-digital photos are not in the database as being individually documented but as a boxed record of photos; an improvement would be to have individual photos documented and scanned. Digital photos are in the database.
