Each year, the Canterbury Maps partners contract new aerial imagery to be captured over the Canterbury region. This imagery is captured from a specialist camera on board a small plane and added to the Latest Imagery Basemap on Canterbury Maps. Not all imagery in the basemap is captured at the same time but it is all combined together to make up the latest imagery basemap. New urban aerial imagery captured over the 2020/2021 summer has now been added to the latest imagery basemap.
These new urban aerial imagery collections were captured with a resolution of 7.5 cm except Christchurch CBD, which was captured with a resolution of 5 cm.
Christchurch & Banks Peninsula
The final aerial imagery which was captured over the 2020/2021 summer will be released in the next few months, these areas are listed below.
The new imagery season will then soon commence over the 2021/2022 summer. The areas which will be captured during this season will be announced later this year so stay tuned! In the meantime, you can keep up to date with all the latest and contracted imagery by checking in on the Aerial Imagery Collections map viewer.
