Thank you for your interest in the post of
Cataloguing Coordinator (Maternity Cover) at
Historic Environment Scotland, with the
Edinburgh-based National Collection of Aerial
Photography (NCAP) team. This is a fixed-term

As a Cataloguing Coordinator you will undertake
the cataloguing of aerial imagery, finding aids and
associated records on a daily basis. Experienced
in the cataloguing of aerial imagery with a proven
track record, you will undertake and oversee
cataloguing work.

The vision for the Cataloguing Team is to work with partners to improve access to
information and data by disseminating aerial images, finding aids and associated records via
the NCAP website. The scale and complexity of the cataloguing work undertaken by the
team necessitates the employment of a Cataloguing Coordinator, to best-ensure that our
digital services are optimised, to prescribed technical standards. This will involve linking
sortie plots to geographical squares, the creation of geographical footprints for aerial
imagery, and the creation of textual catalogue data for historical records associated with
photographic intelligence.
