Historical Aerial Photography of Las Vegas

Historical Aerial Photography Las Vegas 1973 and 2010

These two historical aerial photographs show how much Las Vegas, Nevada has changed during several decades of very rapid growth, multiplying its size several fold during those years. The historical aerial photograph on the top was acquired in 1973 and the aerial on the bottom is a mosaic of photographs acquired in 2010. The city has expanded into the adjacent desert with particularly strong growth in the western portion of the city. High resolution aerial photography of sections of the city also show on a more detailed scale how rapidly certain portions of Las Vegas have changed during very short periods of time. Particularly dramatic are the changes during the 1990s in the northwestern portion of the city.
