2.2.7 Road Overpasses Example 1

Location of Example: 152°34'51" East, 25°59'26" South
Distinctive Characteristics:
  • A Road Overpass is a separation of surface levels constructed to prevent direct intersection with another Road.
  • The shadow signature at the intersection of the two roads is confirmation of an overpass.
  • GA advise that Road Overpass capture when only SPOT imagery is available, should only be attempted with the aid of Reference Material or when certainty is high.
Regional Considerations:
