This is a guide to aerial photography resources, covering Melbourne and Victoria, which are available via the University of Melbourne Library Map Collection, other libraries or freely online.

Library users are often confused about the difference between aerial photography and satellite imagery:

  • Aerial photography is taken from aircraft flying at various attitudes with photographic cameras, usually mounted underneath the plane, pointing downwards.
  • Satellite imagery is taken from high-orbit craft outside of the earth's atmosphere.

Online mapping services, such as Google Maps, make spatial material convenient to access. However you should be careful when using such services, as the material may be out-of-date, for example the default Google imagery may be several years old.
