Perth Metro aerial capture - Summer 2024

I am pleased to advise that capture of the Perth metro area commenced on Australia Day (26th Jan) and has progressed well since.

The central block is already 100% captured and northern and southern blocks are well underway.

Our contractor estimates around 34hrs to capture it all (at 15cm RGB + NIR band) - so that equates to around 9 days flying time.

Best case scenario though: this should be completed by mid-February - providing the weather gods, bush fires and Perth Air Traffic Control restrictions don’t upset things too much.

I will provide updates as they come to hand.

As capture nears completion, I will be able to provide clarity of availability dates for the mosaics.

As of today, the Rottnest mosaic has been completed and will be available at the next migration.
Processing of the Central block is well advanced and should be completed in under a fortnight. We are already in receipt of the raw North and South block imagery, so they will commence by mid-March. The entire metro mosaic is anticipated to be available in late April, into early May.
Updates will be supplied as jobs are completed.
