How much sidelap is adequate for aerial imagery? My AOI has few buildings taller than 3 stories. I want to minimize building lean. I've seen imagery with 40% sidelap and the building lean is pretty bad along the edges. Is 60% side and endlap overkill?

  • Will this be done using SfM pipelines (UAV flights) or traditional orthomosaic stitching (Manned flights)? – Gabriel C. Nov 13 '18 at 21:49
  • Welcome to GIS SE. As a new user, please take the Tour, which explains how our "Focused question/Best answer" model operates. Subjective questions are a better fit for the Geographic Information Systems Chat feature, though it is sufficiently underutilized that you might be able to garner more opinions in a different discussion-oriented community. – Vince Nov 14 '18 at 1:00
  • It would be a traditional manned flight at the county scale. 570 square miles. – Scott Stopyak Nov 15 '18 at 18:21
