Details :

Aerial survey/photographs play an important role in the development of Hong Kong.  Survey and Mapping Office (SMO), Lands Department has taken up the responsibility for providing aerial photography service with its own large format aerial camera for all government bureaux/departments (B/Ds) and the general public for about 50 years. They have long been widely used in mapping, land administration and development, civil engineering projects, environmental monitoring, security operation, aircraft crash investigation, etc. They are also adopted as historical records and court evidence.


In 2012, SMO procured a new large format digital aerial camera to replace the existing film-based aerial camera.  After the delivery of the aerial camera system, completion of installation, testing, training, etc., the new large format digital aerial camera was finally in commissioning in late 2016.  Through this event, the speaker would like to take the opportunity to share the view of “New Era” in the aerial survey, potential applications, some new workflow in the data processing, etc. of the new camera.
