Really Small Aerial Photograph

Several complete aerial surveys of Prince Edward Island may be browsed from this page.

The first set of photographs -- the most recent -- was produced in 2000 by the Department of Agriculture and Forestry as part of the 2000-2002 Corporate Land Use Inventory Project. The copyright of the images is retained by the Province of Prince Edward Island. You can read more information about these photos, including information on how to purchase prints or CDs.

Five additional sets of photographs were produced in 1935, 1958, 1968, 1974 and 1990. The 1935 and 1958 sets are copyright Her Majesty the Queen in Right of Canada, reproduced from the collection of the National Air Photo Library with permission of Natural Resources Canada. The copyright of the 1974 and 1990 images is retained by the Province of Prince Edward Island.
