Notts councils share aerial photography system to aid planning

A consortium of local authorities in Nottinghamshire is using an aerial photography system to aid decision-making and support the delivery of essential council services.

The full-colour GeoPerspectives aerial archive has been supplied to Nottinghamshire County Council, Nottingham City Council, six out of the seven Nottinghamshire district councils, and Nottinghamshire Police.

Purchased from aerial survey specialist BlueSky, the system is being used in areas such as planning and the preparation of police operations.

At Nottinghamshire County Council, the system is available to every desktop via an intranet-based geographical information system.

"The GeoPerspectives aerial photography is a natural addition to our existing map bases," said Julian Walters, project leader at Nottinghamshire County Council.

"It provides an up to date, highly detailed view of the county for applications as diverse as archaeological investigations, monitoring of mineral extraction and waste disposal sites, and accident analysis by the communities department."
