Aerial Photo & Height Data for APGB Members

Covid-19 Pandemic

Following the UK Government’s update to the guidelines some of the team are now back in the office, with some continuing to work from home. The flight operations team continue to fly whilst also adhering to the Government’s guidelines.  Although things are still a bit different behind the scenes it’s business as usual in terms of data, web services and support.  Please contact the team for any assistance, we are fully operational and ready to help.

A Bit About APGB

APGB (Aerial Photography for Great Britain) comprises aerial photography and height data (DTM and DSM), for government. The data itself is captured, processed and delivered by Bluesky International Ltd and Getmapping Plc, two of the premier aerial survey companies in the UK, on a rolling three year update programme. The data is available to APGB members through a web delivery portal for download or delivery on hard drive, or via a Web Mapping Service (WMS).

This website has been set up to bring you information about the data, the ongoing capture and to enable you to order, ask questions and share experiences using APGB data.  The team is here to help you make the most of these most valuable data sets.
