MACDONALD IMAGERY FILM COLLECTION, 1960s-1980s
Manuscript Collection 1598

The MacDonald Imagery Collection contains imagery film from five remotely-sensed platforms: SEASAT (satellite radar imagery of sea surface), aircraft radar, Skylab, aerial photography, and SIR-A (shuttle-imaging radar-A). The collection was donated by Dr. Harold MacDonald, Emeritus University Professor, Geosciences Department, and Dr. William Waite, Professor, Electrical Engineering Department, University of Arkansas.

The remotely-sensed imagery dates from the 1960s and 1970s, during the development of satellite and aircraft-based instrumentation.  The geographic coverage includes mostly the United States and Central America, and some world-wide.

The Arkansas Center for Space and Planetary Sciences awarded two research grants, one for the digitization and web access (2005-2006) and the second for the development of a geospatial digital library collection (2006-2007) of this historic remotely-sensed imagery collection.
