Aerial photography is used to get an overview of property and land from an elevated position and provide information that is not available at ground level.
The history of aerial photography dates back to 1858 when Gaspar Felix Tournachon took an aerial shot of a French village from a hot air balloon. In those days a whole darkroom needed to be carried in the hot air balloon to take a photograph. Aerial photography had military applications during the World War I and after the war it was used for civilian purposes to take photos of cities and areas. A lot of work was done by Sherman Fairchild in this regard who also designed airplanes to make it easier to take photos. Today most aerial photos are digital and there are various options used for photography from satellite images to high resolution shots taken using planes or remote equipment that can be delivered to the client on the same day of shooting.
