40 Cities Wide Area Obliques

Airborne Scientific successfully completed a very large scale wide area oblique photography project over many of the largest and most difficult to fly cities in North America.

Flying altitude was primarily 1800 ft AGL putting us in the thick of controlled airspace.

Cities included Boston, Calgary, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver, and others.

We used two aircraft, our Piper Aztec and our Cessna 172 equipped with a CessnaCam pod and Oblique mapping system. The flying generally covered the entire metro area of these cities, often with hundreds of closely spaced lines over each city. Careful coordination with ATC was essential for timely completion.
