Aerial photography

Application for a permit to disseminate photographs taken from aircraft.

About the permission

Permission from Lantmäteriet (The Swedish Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registration Authority) is required to disseminate aerial photographs and similar recordings taken from aircraft flying over Swedish territory. Permission is granted if the dissemination can be deemed unlikely to harm the Swedish Armed Forces.

Prior permission is therefore not required for aerial photography, but permission is always required for any kind of dissemination of the resulting photographs or other recordings.

Permission issuer and supervision

Lantmäteriet is the supervisory authority.

Origin: Swedish Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registration Authority
