Aerial Photography

The Public Works Engineering Division has historical aerial photographs, from 1940 through 1999, and topographic aerials with 1 foot contours available for review at their office at 100 E 1st St. in Sanford. Black-line copies are available at a nominal charge of $5.00 per copy. One can pay cash or with a check made out to the Seminole County BCC. NOTE: We no longer provide Mylar copies. We will be happy to provide the requested photos on CD for a charge of $10.00 so you may have Mylar copies created at your convenience.

Historical aerials are available for free download in the pdf format from the GIS website.
