Point Roberts Coastal Records Project

We now have three sets of aerial photos of the Point Roberts coast. All three are similar, in that they were taken from a helicopter flying along the shoreline, starting at the northwest corner of the point (Boundary Park) and following the shore around to the northeast corner (Maple Beach). The three sets differ in date (August 2008 or July 2010) and in altitude (600 feet or 300 feet above sea level).

All three sets are up on the photo-sharing site Flickr.com. Clicking on one of the date-and-altitude links below will take you to the Flickr page for one of the sets. There are some Flickr navigation tips below that may be useful if you are not already familiar with Flickr.

August 2008, from 600 feet above sea level

These are the original photos, taken by Gianna Albaum.on August 7, 2008. The set includes 44 photos covering the entire Point Roberts shoreline, starting at the northwest corner and following the shore around to the northeast corner.

These photos are now on Flickr, but they are also still stored in the same place they have been since 2008, on the Point Roberts Coastal Records Project web page. The PRCRP web page contains some information about the photo flight that is not included in the Flickr set, and it also includes extensive but idiosyncratic navigation facilities.








July 2010, from 600 feet above sea level.

These are the most recent photos, taken by John Dorsey.on July 6, 2010. The set includes 42 photos covering the entire Point Roberts shoreline, starting at the northwest corner and following the shore around to the northeast corner. These photos are stored in John Dorsey's Flickr page -- see below for some tips on Flickr navigation.











July 2010, from 300 feet above sea level.

These are the most recent photos, taken by Anne Dorsey on July 6, 2010. The set includes 82 photos covering the entire Point Roberts shoreline, starting at the northwest corner and following the shore around to the northeast corner. These photos are stored in Anne Dorsey's Flickr page -- see below for some tips on Flickr navigation.
