Urban Building Displacement Specification
Urban 0.075 m GSD imagery – by flying with 60% forward overlap and with 35% sidelap (standard
stereo coverage), 1 m building lean per 3 m height in the corners of the imagery. Christchurch CBD and University of Canterbury areas flown with 80% forward with 80% sidelap to achieve <0.37 m per 3 m height over areas with tall buildings.
