When New Zealand Aerial Mapping (NZAM) went into liquidation in September 2014, LINZ took ownership of their historic archive, and these photos are now available to the public.

This layer has been provided to enable potential users to identify the coverage of aerial photography for Mainland NZ flown by NZAM for private contract work between 1939 and 2008. These surveys compliment the Historic Aerial Photos, Survey Footprints, CROWN (1936-2005) layer which is currently being scanned.

If you are aware of any inaccuracies, please contact LINZ: info@linz.govt.nz 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.
