When New Zealand Aerial Mapping (NZAM) went into liquidation in September 2014, LINZ took ownership of their historic imagery archive.
This layer has been provided to enable potential users to identify the coverage of aerial photography for Mainland NZ flown by NZAM between 1939 and 2008. If you are aware of any inaccuracies, please contact LINZ: firstname.lastname@example.org or +64 4 4600110. The layer shows the approximate bounding box of each aerial survey undertaken. The Collection exists as photographic negatives which are not in digital form so the images are not downloadable from the LDS. The Collection is managed for LINZ by WSP Opus International. You can order images from the Collection from Opus NZ in a number of formats, including: - contact prints - enlargements - digital files - precision scans for photogrammetric production - orthophotos You will need to tell Opus NZ the survey number (the value in the ‘survey’ attribute) covering your area of interest and the name of the survey. Opus NZ will be able to provide information about the cost of providing images in the various formats. Contact them at: email@example.com or 0800 680 690 There are a small number of surveys that have not been referenced in the LDS layers due to incomplete metadata. Opus NZ will be able to let you know if additional photographs are available in your area of interest.
