Aerial photography

Historical aerial photography

Historical aerial photography can highlight development and land use changes over a period of time to reveal site history that may not be recorded anywhere else. These photos can play an important role in site analysis by providing, for example, evidence in boundary disputes, as well as identifying activities and property use from the past which may have an environmental impact on the site today.

Our extensive Aerial Photography library goes back to 1966 and includes imagery from both Blom and Skyscan.
