Oblique Aerial Cameras

Project researchers

The research project aims to investigate the potentialities of oblique aerial camera systems (e.g. Vexcel Osprey, Midas, Pictometry, VisionMap A3, IGI digicam, etc.). The use of aerial oblique imagery has become a standard for many civil and mapping applications. The indisputable virtue of oblique photography lies in its simplicity of interpretation and understanding for inexperienced users as well as the derivation of dense and complete 3D data of urban areas. Applications go from building detection to structural damage classification, from road land updating and administration services to 3D city modeling.
