The Coast Protection Board has been undertaking coastal aerial oblique photography since the 1970’s. The program is designed to capture the diversity of the South Australian coastal landscape and a range of management and development issues impacting the state’s coastline.
The oblique photography complements the vertical aerial photographic program historically undertaken by the department. In recent years, these images have been publicly available as a layer on NatureMaps, DEW’s online mapping and data access site.
The photographs are currently utilised to inform coastal management decisions but can also be of assistance to natural resource managers, coastal researchers and community groups involved in coastal management.
