Resolution Samples

The resolution of the aerial photography is usually expressed in either output scale (Hardcopy) or pixel resolution (Digital Aerials). The required resolution is usually one of the most important aspects of any aerial photography project. It is important to understand that the required pixel size or scale of the aerial photography image is the primary determining factor for planning and obtaining the aerial photography project.

The aerial imagery on this page is to be used to understand how different resolutions appear when compared to the exact same subject from differing altitudes.

The TFAI website user should select the type of aerial photography subject that the resolution is to be compared from the list below:
