Without actually flying it and I cant atm because of the weather.  Does anyone know roughly how much area in meters is covered by taking a single aerial photograph with the camera pointing vertically down at a height of 100m?
Width x depth


Thanks in advance

Well roughly if we take the FOV to be 90 degrees, from basic trig, at 100m height gives about 200m x 200m box - so 40,000 square metres. Hey that's a lot!

But the image size is 4:3 at 94° FOV, so it's more like 214m x 161m

Still a lot...
