Imagery captured with no cloud or cloud shadow within the area of interest. Coastal and harbour
areas captured within two hours either side of low tide.
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.
