Description

This series consists of key maps developed and used by the predecessors of the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy in order to locate the aerial photographic prints in its State Aerial Photography Library (see related series).

The key maps were drafted by correlating each aerial print to a cadastral or topographic map. The maps show the centre of approximately every third aerial photograph, joined by a line to show the run taken by the pilot. This was achieved by laying the aerial print on large layout tables in their respective runs, from the first frame photographed to the last frame photographed before the plane turned around and commenced a new run. The features on the cadastral or topographic maps (creeks, roads, railways etc.) were used to specifically locate the photographs.

These key maps were then used by departmental staff to assist the public in searching and acquiring the aerial photographs. Eventually, all of the key maps were digitised and the centres of each frame (latitude/longitude) was entered into the Aerial Photograph Data Base (APDB).

The QImagery website is now available to the public for searching and downloading these photographs. QImagery geolocates and aligns the collection of digitised historical aerial images from the State Aerial Photography Library with an online map of the state, allowing users to search for and view the images by location. Users can also download and save digital copies of the aerial images from the site.
