2.1.6 Greenhouses Example 1

Location of Example: 152°25'53" East, 24°57'25" South
Distinctive Characteristics:
  • Greenhouses are generally located near farm infrastructure and Homesteads.
  • Greenhouses tend to have uniquely reflective surfaces, and often appear as a raised square or rectangular structures, evident by their shadow.
  • They are distinguishable by their segmented, grid like roof pattern.
  • In Figure: the segmentations of the rooves of the greenhouses are not clear and therefore can easily be confused with large sheds or Buildings.
Regional Considerations:
