A bird's-eye view of Switzerland
An important treasure of aerial photography is revving up; the first 14,000 images from the Foundation Luftbild Schweiz archive are online. The photos show the whole of Switzerland, and can be ordered online.
The mainly black-and-white soaring vertical pictures cover the period from the 1960s till the end of the 1990s. They were developed in 24 x 24 cm format, so many details can be discovered with the search function.
In the coming months the ETH Bibliothek Image Archive will gradually augment its aerial photography offer with historical images and colour photos as well as oblique photographs.
Have a look in the Bildarchiv Online and take off.
