Vertical Aerial Photography and Digital Imagery, 5th edition

By advising on best practice, this guidance is intended to assist all those connected with the request, purchase and production of surveys and mapping material.

Recognising the shift in demand from panchromatic film towards the increasing use of digital cameras and sensors, this document is intended for use in drawing up clear ‘specifications’ for aerial photography and digital imagery, obtained directly from digital cameras and sensors or derived from analogue aerial photography using digital scanners.

This document is designed as a specification for vertical aerial photography typically required for:

  • Photogrammetric mapping and digital data collection
  • Production of orthophotography and digital mosaics
  • Environmental information gathering and general interpretation
