Welcome ALL to Aerial Photography Group.

Principles and Applications of Aerial Photography_Enviromental Science.org

"The first aerial photograph was oblique and taken of a French village in the late 19th century. The man who took it - photographer Gaspar Felix Tournachon - patented the concept of using aerial photographs to compile maps (5); it was to prove much more effective than the time-consuming ground surveys that had then been the more commonly-used method of the national mapping organisations that developed throughout the 19th century (such as the UK's Ordnance Survey).

George R. Lawrence took aerial photographs of San Francisco in 1906 following the devastating earthquake, but it was not until World War I - when potentially military applications were foreseen - that a systematic process of taking aerial photographs would become key to the development of the method."

Of course, today, this form of photography is mainly used for its scenic value.

Please watch the following video. Its very beautiful.
