Urban areas are aerial photographed with higher resolution

From the aerial photography season 2023, four zones will be applied in the area that are aerial photographed at an interval of 4-10 years.

The plan is to photograph selected areas with a resolution of 0.15 m / pixel in one zone per year. All municipalities in these zones get their central town or other selected area aerial photographed with a higher resolution compared to the areas outside.

2023 aerial photography begins with zone 2 and then the zones in order 3 2024, 4 2025 and 1 2026. Then we start again with zone 2 2027.
