Oblique aerial photos are photos taken, at an angle, from a plane or drone. With such photos, you
get a better and more spacious overview of what a given location looks like, without being on site.
Oblique photos are typically used to present buildings. 5 pictures are taken of each building: a top-down image and an oblique image in the direction of east, west, north and south. The photos are taken at a lower altitude than the normal flight photo. This means, for example, that you can see the facades on buildings and other details from all four corners of the world.
In 2018, the Danish Agency for Data Supply and Efficiency (Styrelsen for Dataforsyning og Effektivisering) launched a set of nationwide oblique aerial photos, and with this as a base, Viamap has developed an API that makes access to this large set of photos easily accessible.
Oblique aerial photos are an effective tool in construction, as well as many other industries such as
architecture and the craft industry.
