Recovery of Historical Aerial Photographs in the Austrian Alps

Historical images provide valuable information of past conditions and allow assessments long-term changes. A unique source in this regard are stereo photographs taken by US Air Force over entire Europe after World War II. Austria was photographed in August 1945, with excellent technology for the time. The aim of this project is to process this data for the Austrian Alps, generate digital elevation models and orthoimages and make the data accessible to the public.
