The bounding box of the aerial photographs in the flooded areas around the Meuse, the Vesdre and the Demer. On the occasion of the floods which hit Belgium, aerial photographs have been made in the flooded areas around the Meuse from Eisden to Luik, the Vesdre and the Demer. access to the bounding box of these aerial photographs is free. Due to the high resolution, the aerial photographs may contain or give access to private data. This is why they are not accessible for the general public. The aerial photographs are available, only for public institutions, in the download portal. Access code required, available through firstname.lastname@example.org.
This dataset contains the orthophotos of the floodable areas along the Meuse, the Vesdre and the Demer. These orthophotos are digital aerial photographs, taken by Hansa Luftbild following the floods of July 2021, in which the systematic distortions due to the central projection, relief and the not always perfectly vertical axis of shooting have been corrected. The orthophoto thereby obtained is metrically more accurate than an ordinary aerial photograph and is highly valuable as basic information. The resolution of the data is 6.5 cm (4 cm above the Hoëgne).
