Creative Uses

NCAP works with partners throughout the world, including documentary makers and computer software companies, who feature our imagery in their products.

Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD)

The analysis of aerial photography supplied by NCAP is an essential process in locating Explosive Ordnance. It enables specialists to excavate, make safe, and dispose of unexploded bombs.

Boundary Disputes

Available aerial photography of Scotland spans 80 years, making it a useful tool in litigation. Between the 1930's and today, many locations in Scotland are covered at least six times, potentially demonstrating boundary conditions on precise dates.

Land-use Change

Our extensive range of historical aerial photographs can aid in analysis of past land use which could have an environmental impact on the site today and in the future.
