Related to the Landscape indicators. Challenges and prospects seminar and the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Institut Cartogràfic de Catalunya (ICC), is hold an exhibition that recovers images from the ICC photographic funds in order to show landscape evolution in Catalonia.

The ICC photographic fund assembles aerial photographies collections from different sources since the 1940 decade. Since the 1984, the ICC has its own flight team and yearly carries out regular photographic campaigns, whose result increases and updates the fund. Year 2005 we began to use aerial digital cameras, so analogic format gave place to digital format.

The Map Library of the ICC helds a Photo library in order to preserve all this documental material that is composed nowadays of more than 350,000 black/white, color and infrared aerial photographies.
