The Coast Protection Board has been undertaking coastal aerial oblique photography since the 1970’s. The aerial photos are 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 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, the department's online mapping and data access site.
The photographs are used to inform coastal management decisions but can also help natural resource managers, coastal researchers and community groups involved in coastal management.
