Low Resolution Oblique Aerial Image of Saqsaywaman, Cuzco, Peru

Oblique Aerial Image

This low-resolution, oblique aerial photography captured over the archaeological site of Saqsaywaman near Cusco, Peru in early 2006 is a nice example of what can be done with non-traditional aerial images. These four images were taken with a 1.2 megapixel camera from a relatively low altitude and represent the type of data you would typically expect when collecting close-range digital images via a low flying aircraft, UAV, kite, or balloon.
