This polygon layer is provided to assist with identifying the coverage of aerial photography in the Crown Aerial Film Archive. Included surveys were flown on behalf of the Crown and private entities by New Zealand Aerial Mapping between 1936 and 2008.

Note:No historical aerial photos can be directly downloaded from the LINZ Data Service. Photos are provided only upon request (see below).

The footprints in this layer are estimations of the extent of each photograph taken. Positional accuacy will vary and not all photos have associated footprints.

The physical Crown Aerial Film Archive is managed for Toitū Te Whenua LINZ by WSP New Zealand. Nearly all Crown surveys have been scanned and are available digitally upon request. See the Crown Aerial Film Archive historical imagery scanning project for direction on how to access the digitised photos. _ _

Photos not yet digitised can be ordered from WSP NZ for a fee. You will need to provide the survey, run, and photo number (values in the ‘SURVEY’, 'RUN', and 'PHOTO_NO' attributes) for each image in your area of interest. WSP will be able to provide a quote for providing the images in various formats. Contact them at WSP Photo Sales.

The Crown Aerial Film Archive is an amalgamation of surveys flown by New Zealand Aerial Mapping for the Crown and surveys flown for private entities. This layer is updated periodically to reflect the latest imagery digitised and ready for distribution.
