AEROmetrex provides aerial photography and mapping services across Australia and beyond. During hundreds of flights and thousands of hours in the air way we’ve amassed a large collection of high quality oblique aerial images that we’re now making available for you to buy in digital format.
The scenic images cover capital cities throughout Australia along with numerous smaller towns and remote locations along the coastline, including Broome, Townsville, Gold Coast, Newcastle and Caloundra. We’ve even gathered images from across the Tasman in New Zealand. From the tallest skyscrapers to pristine beaches, from the dry red dust of the north-west to the lush green parklands of Adelaide, we have something for everyone.
Since the launch of the first Earth observation satellite in 1959, the world has witnessed incredible developments in terms of platform and sensors to observe the Earth. It is now possible to see virtually any part of our planet and distinguish objects the size of a mountain up to the size of a coin. Read more
The South-East of Australia has once more become a victim of devastating floods that have forced many residents to evacuate their homes. Regional townships in Victoria and New South Wales have been hit the most. AEROmetrex has been commissioned by the Victorian government to survey a large part of Victoria. AEROmetrex is a trusted supplier of aerial photography due to our extensive experience and efficiency during extremely time-sensitive disaster events. Read more
All medium and large-format digital aerial camera systems can acquire information in the visible part of the electromagnetic to produce natural colour images using their Red, Green and Blue channels. These camera systems are also able to acquire data from an invisible part of the electromagnetic spectrum called near-infrared (NIR). Read more
Uluru also called Ayers Rock is a huge sand rock formation (3.6 km long x 1.9 km wide) in the Australian outback. This very famous Australian trademark rises 348m above ground but it’s two third of this impressive rock lies underground.
The Aboriginal traditional owners of Uluru are the Anangu. Sacred sites are situated all around the base of the rock. Read more

The reach of an aerial acquisition company is usually restricted to a specific area or country due to the fact that aircraft are based in a specific location. Remote survey locations attract higher mobilisation and logistical costs. Other countries can impose difficult conditions on aerial survey operations and military clearance has to be obtained for imaging in some countries. Read more
The gap between these two usually complementary mapping technologies is getting smaller as both satellite and aerial imaging systems have benefited from great technology improvements in the last decade. These technologies can even overlap in terms of resolution, meaning that issues such as accuracy, acquisition and processing time need to be taken into account . It is more of a challenge to make informed decisions about which technology to choose for a mapping project. Nevertheless, each technology is alive and well and possess unique characteristics and strengths which need to be highlighted. Read more
1480: The origin of photogrammetry goes back as far as 1480 when Leonardo da Vinci developed the concept of perspective and projective geometry.
1625: French mathematician Desargues defines projective geometry generalizing the use of vanishing points.
1840: The first use of photogrammetry was by the French geodesist Arago using a process called Daguerreotype.
