Kenton County Aerial Photos
Those who established the Northern Kentucky Area Planning Commission (NKAPC; PDS’ predecessor) in 1961 also initiated the community’s rich history of aerial photography. Toward the goal of creating technically-accurate maps for local comprehensive plans, NKAPC contracted with American Air Surveys, Inc. in 1962 to provide black and white aerial photographs for all of Kenton and Campbell Counties using federal grant money. (Campbell County was part of NKAPC’s jurisdiction at that time.) These photos were critical to development of the first area-wide comprehensive plan for Kenton and Campbell Counties (as required by Chapter 147 of the Kentucky Revised Statutes) in 1972.
