Do I get more detail with a larger aerial photograph?

No. A photographic enlargement only appears to show more detail than a 9-by-9 inch photograph. Photographic resolution (or image resolution) deteriorates with each enlargement factor.

Photographic reproduction of images from the USGS film archives ceased on September 3, 2004. For those who specifically need paper or film products, there is a list of USGS Business Partners who provide aerial photographic research and image printing services.
