Province-wide aerial photographs of Prince Edward Island

Prince Edward Island is rich in aerial photographs. Beginning as early as 1935, full provincial coverage has been flown in Black & White, Colour and Infrared format. These years include 1935, 1958, 1968, 1974, 1990, 2000 and most recently in 2010. The 2010 coverage represented a significant change in the collection of aerial photography as it was done entirely in digital format. The 2010 images were taken in August of 2010 at a resolution of 0.5metres meaning an object on the ground had to be 50 cm to be viewed, a vast improvement over previous years. The resultant files are extremely large in size (1Gbyte per map) and primarily require dedicated GIS (Geographic Information System) software for viewing.
