Crabbing

Viewed 162 Times 0 Comments

When capturing aerial photo from fixed wing aircraft, crabbing is the adjustment of the flightline on the fly to compensate for wind in order to remain on the intended path and capture the intended targets.  The consequence of crabbing is that the orientation of the images will not be parallel with the intended flight line, which affects the amount of overlap and side lap between images, which can cause difficulties with creating stereo pairs.
