Aerial Photography

A method of survey used to locate sites and buried structures from the air. Features can be seen on photographs due to differences in soil texture and moisture content as well as vegetation growth. These show up as colour and shade differences known as cropmarks and soilmarks.

Photographs can be oblique or vertical, the latter is taken with an overlap to allow examination through a stereoscope.

    Hi there,

    I wonder if you are able to help me. I am after aerial photography, preferably oblique photos of the following buildings: Bishops Wharf (referred to as Onslow Bridge Chambers, Bishops Wharf and Clydesdale Bank) in Guildford Surrey GU1 4TL.

    In particular I am after the western façade of these building that looks on to the carpark and railways station dating between 1990 – 1998. I am interested to understand the difference between the locations of the windows of the western side of the x3 buildings named above in comparisons to the location of the windows of the buildings that were there previously between 1990 – 1998.

    I have an aerial photo dated 1998 which shows a vacant site, suggesting the period that the current building was going to be built. However, I really need to see what the pervious buildings were.

    I hope you can help me and I look forward to hearing from you either way.

    Kind regards,
    Stephanie
