2019 aerial (satellite-equivalent) BRC Gigapan

Better than available satellite resolution.

For all the gnashing of teeth and rending of garments on the lack of unplaced space, the city is nicely packed. They also captured points 1,2,4&5.

Thanks, Mr Percy!

I see me! This is very cool. I always enjoy finding my camp in the satellite pic. This rendering is better than any of the previous satellite pics I've seen. Thanks for sharing.

This is Tiger Man Camp. It's a 50' by 50' space. We all arrive from different states, (and countries). Six people, shade structure, money hut, two tents, five vehicles and a trailer.

Res on par with some years. Too bad it isn't higher (I like detail).

Too bad we can't know the date or range of dates this was from. Might have an effect on the compression of camps in the gigapan.

Nicely packed?
It's a hodge-podge of some camps very tightly packed, some just crammed in, others nicely filling & using the allotted space, with a number (too many?) with open space where others really can't use without intruding. I wonder if they'll use this when considering next year's space allotments.

Along parts of the walk-in camping, there's a lot more vehicles there than there are tents/structures...

Interesting how the conformity of some camps just screams turn-key or corporate.

It's going to be very interesting matching the moop map with this...

Nice that it's morning shots, so shadows shows the height of various structures.

I see a few places where they've gotten rather creative in connecting hexayurts!

Lucky, Your lead did a great job on planning. The key is to carpool. We can't. Unfortunately everyone lives far apart and comes at different times.

If someone believes they can wait to rent an RV, they should spend 30 minutes zooming on this gigapan.

Great job with operation of drone and many hours of stitching!

I never saw this set-up before:
