The bank of oblique photographs of Northern Quebec is composed of georeferenced photos taken aboard airplanes or helicopters during fly-overs made as part of the Northern Quebec ecological knowledge acquisition program of the economic, social and environmental development project “Plan Nord”. During these fly-overs, the personnel on board were equipped with high-resolution cameras linked to a satellite geolocation system (GPS). The photos thus obtained were used as control points to improve the various thematic maps. Note: For the purposes of distribution of this bank, the photos may have been slightly modified to improve the shooting. Georeferencing photos on the map refers to the location of the airplane or helicopter at the time of shooting.This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).
