NRSC Cayman Islands Aerial PhotographyEntry ID: UK-NRSC-AER-1021
Abstract: This archive contains aerial photography of the Cayman Islands.
These vertical aerial photographs are taken with a large camera mounted in
the floor of an aeroplane flying in a series of pre-planned flight lines.
The images overlap by 60% along the flight line to allow for stereoscopic
(3D) viewing. There is a 25% overlap between flight lines.
In addition to their prime application in ... photogrammetric mapping (from
updating and contouring existing maps to preparing large scale engineering
plans), air photos are used for environmental studies, general planning,
land use and land capability, soils, pollution, forestry, mining and
quarrying, housing and leisure development, agriculture, geology, water,
transport and civil engineering, boundary disputes, public enquiries, etc.
The data is stored mainly as colour photographic negatives and can be
supplied as both digital and photographic products (positive or negative).
To find out what imagery is available for a specific area, a cover search
can be performed free of charge. Price lists and further information about
cover searches are available, on request, from the National Remote Sensing
Note: All photography is flown to RICS Specification for Aerial
Photography Issue III, see references.
