Zeiss RMK large format aerial photography camera

Equipment Type: Camera equipment

The British Antarctic Survey owns and operates a Zeiss RMK large format aerial photography camera. The camera can be fitted to two of the four BAS Twin Otter aircraft. It was originally designed by Zeiss for topographic mapping. As well as for topographic mapping, BAS uses aerial photography taken with this camera for geological and vegetation mapping, interpreting satellite imagery and counting populations of penguins and seals. BAS collaborates with the UK Hydrographic Office to fly aerial photography for hydrographic charting.
