Paper: Aerial photographs and the record of agriculture and engineering in Otago

Abstract: Otago has a wealth of engineering, goldmining and agricultural sites. Aerial photographs are essential to recognise and map sites and helpful in interpreting the meaning of pattern. The patterns may reflect a range of underlying variables such as the exploited resource, the facilities needed to exploit it, transport and social factors such as the supporting settlements, and also modern heritage management issues. Aerial photographs may also be used in illustrating and dramatising sites. Conventional wide-area aerial photographic coverage is useful but, for detail, customflown vertical aerials in medium format film and digital media are better. Historical aerial photographs (which date back to about 1945) also have applications, especially where there has been substantial landscape change. On the upper Shotover River, historical processes depended on settlement enclosure and mining capital investment all of which can be investigated using aerial photographs. In addition examples of aerial photographs of a range of engineering subjects in Otago are shown.
