13 October 2006: Cambridge – The GeoInformation® Group, publishers of Cities Revealed aerial photography ( www.citiesrevealed.com), announce today that it has captured aerial imagery of Belfast at 12.5 cm resolution. This high-resolution aerial imagery dataset was captured on 16th September 2006 and is the most current aerial imagery available of Belfast, at this resolution.
Belfast City Council, Northdown Council and Carrick Fergus Council amongst other clients commissioned The GeoInformation Group to capture the dataset, which covers approximately 500 square kilometres of the Northern Ireland capital and surrounding area. Belfast is currently undergoing a major regeneration programme particularly the high profile Titanic Quarter, a 185 acre site that represents one of the largest waterfront developments in Europe; Laganside, the city’s waterfront and old docks area; and North Foreshore a 340 acre area of reclaimed land to the north of the city centre. These areas are included in the Cities Revealed aerial survey of Belfast and it is anticipated that the aerial imagery will be used extensively in the regeneration programme
Alun Jones, Managing Director of The GeoInformation Group, comments, "With the very recent capture of Belfast The GeoInformation Group continues to capture and provide the most up to date aerial imagery available to the market and maintains its position as leading supplier of geographic information to both the public and private sector."
