Historic Imagery

Precise Spatial Solutions

Photomapping Services have access to a vast array of aerial photography and satellite imagery covering dating as early as the 1930’s. Our archives include imagery coverage of all states of Australia and various other countries and combines resources from our own projects and those of State and Commonwealth Governments.

Archived aerial photography can be invaluable in providing historical information on your project site. Our archived photography may help identify sites that were previously used as quarries, waste producing industrial areas or sites of particular cultural significance. Information collected regarding changes in landscape and land usage can be identified and incorporated into site risk assessments and development planning.

Applications of Historical photography

Scanning and Preservation Equipment

Our expertise in this area extends beyond the usage and provision of historical photography. Photomapping and our associate company United Photo and Graphics, whom now operate from our North Melbourne offices, have played an important role in the scanning, storage and preservation of historical film for a great number of years.

Scans can be completed for colour, B&W, diapositive and negative mediums to 8 microns using the following equipment:

  • Leica ™ DSW700 precise film scanners
  • Geosystem Delta™ precise large format scanners
  • Film storage facilities
  • Imatizer™ 2304 precise photogrammetric scanner
