U-2 Product

There is currently a distressingly small amount of U-2 derived imagery in the public realm. The good news is that as of early 1998 most U-2 imagery acquired through the early 1970s [ie, Russia, China, Southeast Asia, etc] has been declassified and transfered to the National Archives and Records Service. The bad news is that this product is currently devoid of finding aids, producing the familiar "needle in a haystack" problem [that is, there is no meta-data telling the user where to find imagery of interest, or telling the user when or where a particular image was acquired]. It seems that in the fullness of time, by late 1998, appropriate finding aids will be implemented, at which time we anticipate a grotesquely extensive expansion of this presently rather modest imagebank resource.
