Abstract: The aim of this test-bed project, initiated and financed by the Belgian Federal Services for Scientific, Technical and Cultural Affairs (SSTC Project I2/AE/103), is to acquire within the coming 4 years, the necessary know-how, hardware and software in order (i) to preserve the historic and the scientific information contained in aero- and astrophotographic archives, both on glass plates and on film; (ii) to provide a user-friendly intranet and internet access to the catalogue and the (meta)data; (iii) to make the photographic information exploitable again for scientific applications, by means of a high resolution digitisation technique.
