Aerial Photography Overview
The Province of Nova Scotia maintains a photographic film archive at the Nova Scotia Geomatics Centre. This archive includes over 600,000 recent and historical vertical aerial photographs. 

The provincial mapping program uses aerial photography at 1:10,000 scale (colour) for forest mapping inventory and at 1:35,000 or 1:40,000 (black and white) to update the 1:10,000 Nova Scotia Topographic Database mapping, both scales cover the entire province.

By photographing each county approximately every 10 years, an enormous historical record has been assembled. The photographic film archive also includes custom photography flown for other provincial departments for specific mapping projects, at various scales using colour, black & white, or infrared film.
