TANNER MONROE JESSEL

Dear Mr. Jessel:

This is in reply to your e-mail request of August 12, regarding aerial photography of the Great Smoky Mountains. The request was received in this office on August 13.

The area of coverage that you are requesting is so large that we would encourage you to visit our research room in College Park, Maryland in person or send a professional researcher to pursue this research for you. If that is impractical, we can provide you with copies of graphic aerial indexes (for a price) for the five counties, from which you can select image citations to order reproductions of the aerial images. Below is the information necessary to order reproductions of the graphic indexes which provide complete aerial coverage of the five counties:

RG 114: Aer. Indx., NC – Haywood Co., 1953. (4 sheets, each 20 by 24-inches)
RG 114: Aer. Indx., NC – Swain Co., 1951. (6 sheets, each 20 by 24-inches)
RG 114: Aer. Indx., TN – Blount Co., 1953. (4 sheets, each 20 by 24-inches)
RG 114: Aer. Indx., TN – Cocke Co., 1953. (4 sheets, each 20 by 24-inches)
RG 114: Aer. Indx., TN – Sevier Co., 1953. (4 sheets, each 20 by 24-inches)

Reproduction of records from the holdings of the Cartographic Section of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) will be available only through the private vendors identified below.

I am a recent M.S. in Information Science graduate from the University of Tennessee School of Information Science. I was formerly a graduate research assistant funded by DataONE (Data Observation Network for Earth). Prior, I worked for four years as a content lead and biodiversity scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Biodiversity Informatics Program. Building on my work experience in biodiversity and environmental informatics, my work with DataONE focused on exploring the nature of scientific collaborations necessary for scientific inquiry. I also conducted research concerning user experience and usability, and assisted in development of member nodes with an emphasis on spatial data and infrastructure. I assisted with research designed to understand sociocultural issues within collaborative research communities. Through August 1, 2014, I was based at the Center for Information and Communication Studies at the University of Tennessee School of Information Science in Knoxville, Tennessee.
