Kite Aerial photography (KAP) is photography generated by lifting camera into the sky through use of a kite. The camers is triggered either remotely or automaticsally to take the aerial shot and can be attached directly to the kite, but is usually secured to an adjustable rig suspended from the kite line. With this elevated view, pilots can capture landscapes, objects, architecture, and people in entirely new ways. The beginning of KAP dates back to the late 19th century. Aerial photography from kites is, in fact, one of the oldest forms of remote sensing of the Earth's surface.
