Aerial photography lets you clearly identify sites, access points, surrounding areas, boundaries and road layouts from a snapshot in time.
- Simply locate and mark out your site of interest anywhere in the United Kingdom.
- Check the list of available capture dates, choose the ones you want.
- Order & download.
N.B. Order downloads are generally instant. However, larger images can take longer to process.
The lower the resolution the greater the clarity of image.
12.5 cm to 50 cm resolution accuracy. Each pixel of an aerial image represents a distance on the ground, therefore 12.5 cm resolution is often more accurate than say 25 cm as twice as much detail is captured per pixel.
