Abstract: Monoscopic virtual representations of 3D geometries are rapidly becoming important products of many databases and software applications. Many GIS tools ¿ even freeware, such as Google Earth ¿ permit the visualization of city planning models as well as landscapes derived from 3D geometries (digital surface models draped with imagery, called 2.5D visualization). These applica-tions also are steadily becoming less qualitative, and more metric, as they are integrated into GIS environments. Up until now, such image rendering has usually been made with non-photogrammetric sensors, and has not been based upon state-of-the-art air survey systems. In the photogrammetry domain, the orthogonally projected image remains the paradigm. This approach however neglects imagery that may better represent the surfaces of objects such as building fa-cades. We propose that off-nadir parts of vertical imagery ¿ typically ignored after the orthorectifi-cation process ¿ provide us systematically with much data that can be used to optimize the 2.5D rendering process
