Aerial Photographs


The CPC Ecuador Spatial Database contains hundreds of 1:60,000-scale air photos from 1979 and 1990. The 1990 air photos cover the core of the study area, and the 1979 photos are on the less-developed periphery. The photos were scanned at 300 dpi as TIFF images. A scanned reference index can be provided as needed.


All air photos were acquired from the Instituto Geográfico Militar (IGM) de Ecuador in Quito.
