AERIA1 photos taken by the RCAF are turned over to Mines and Resources, Army. and other government departments for mapping and other purposes. Note: this is an old picture, and unfortunately shows WD's no longer in the Air Force. - Possibly it could be cropped to excluse them.

Two million square miles of Canada are stored in special fireproff vaults at the RCAFIs No.1 Photo Establishment, Rockcliffe, preserved on photographic negatives taken by aircraft of 22 photo Wing, which has the job o f covering the Dominion by aerial photography. Shown above are just a few of the negative rolls which represent thousands of flying hours and painstaking aerial photographic work by the RCAF, and which are playing a big part in developing our natural resources and pushing back our northern frontiers. The aerial pictures are used by the Department of Mines and Resources and other government departments, as well as by the Army, for mapping. In addition, many commercial uses are made of the photos.
