    Default What happened to the aerial photographs at zoomin?

    A few months ago there were some threads on mapping and the aerial pictures at:

    http://www.zoomin.co.nz/

    Did I just dream it or was I able to bring up aerial shots of New Zealand locations in addition to the maps?

    Google Earth is great but Zoomin was better and had better coverage than Google.

    Now if I try all I get is:


    Address not found

    http://www.zoomin.co.nz/images/flash-error.gif Sorry. We don't have the address that you're looking for.

    You weren't dreaming
    I was looking at the arial photos on that site a couple of weeks ago too.
    Going to the link i had bookmarked for zoomin maps and i can't see no option for arial photos either

    The Zoomin site works fine for me - the street maps. Did you mean aerial images only?
    Maybe they were updating the site when you went to it.

    yes, I mean the aerial photos, the maps work fine....I've tried a number of times for a few weeks now, and even old links to the photos now only give error messages

    Brig, I notice on this info page, aerial photos are not mentioned:
    http://www.zoomin.co.nz/?page/about

    If they had them there previously, maybe they ran into copyright problems using the aerial photos.

    I was thinking along the same lines myself, or maybe it was so popular that they're going to figure out how to charge us money for it?

    They used to have aerial overlays, but have removed it. I don't find the site to be that good, as it doesn't show the location of property nmbers. Wises.co.nz is a better site.

    Just checked Wises, and no property numbers there although like Zoomin, it will place a pointer on the map for a searched number.... BUT Wises puts it in the middle of the street and Zoomin puts it on the correct side of the street.
