The Geospatial Centre air photo collection consists of paper images from 1930-2000. An interactive map shows the extent and years of coverage. Images of the Region of Waterloo for the years 1930, 1945, 1946 and 1955 are available through the Historical Air Photo Project website. These photos mainly cover the Regional Municipality of Waterloo and adjacent areas. Our most complete coverage of southern Ontario can be found in the 1978 MNR collection. The library has a large collection of recent digital orthoimagery available. We also have a small collection of satellite images. Many earlier photos of the Region of Waterloo have been scanned and made available on the web.
*Please note: Air Photos are for University of Waterloo patron use only. We do not lend air photos to those outside the UW community. Additionally, air photos are not allowed to leave the library.
To see which areas are covered for a particular year, use the interactive map or click on the date-range of interest and then scroll through the images. The extent of the coverage held by the Geospatial Centre is indicated by means of blue shading.
