Historic aerial photography – Retrolens
Retrolens is a resource for viewing historic aerial photography across our region. It can be used for various purposes such as decision making, complying with regulatory requirements and cultural heritage. Retrolens is a collaboration between a number of councils and central government to preserve and digitise more than 500,000 historic aerial photo negatives, dating back to the 1930s.
The historic images are available for download and released under Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 NZ.
