Vertical / Oblique Imagery

Vertical images 

Images taken by a camera pointing to the nadir direction. Pointing to the nadir means that the camera axis (in the direction of the lens) is perpendicular to the ground / object.

 

Oblique images 

Images are taken with the camera axis not perpendicular to the ground / object.
