The vertical aerial is taken looking straight down from the aircraft. It is planimetric in view and usually offers information in two dimensions only. Altitude is the determining factor in the area to be covered in an image. Verticals can be shot from low flying aircraft for very site-specific photos or from thousands of feet to cover large areas. Additionally, multiple images can be “stitched” together to cover even larger areas. Verticals are great to show property outlines and traffic grids and can be used for engineering or design purposes to take scaled measurements on the ground.
