The Survey Office separated from the Lands Department in March 1975 with the Cartographic Branch having responsibility for the provision of photographic services.

The Photographic Branch supplied a range of photographic services to the Survey Office, other Government departments and private firms. This included the production of blue, photostat, diazo and bromide prints, diapositives, and film negatives and positives.

The Branch also produced aerial photographs, air photo mosaics, flight diagrams, and still and cine photographs. All reproductions from photographic negatives were contracted out to private firms.

The Survey Office became the Mapping and Surveying Department on 13 December 1975.
