Historical Abbottsford

Air photos are used for a variety of applications. One of the most fascinating is to view an area over time and note the changes in land use. The lower mainland area of British Columbia has seen spectacular growth over the last number of decades. The Abbotsford area in the Fraser Valley is a dramatic example of the change from a predominantly agricultural area to an urban area.
