I am using ArcMap 10.2.1.
I am learning about the concepts behind aerial imagery. I understand the Instantaneous Field of View is the cone seen by the optics on the satellite. I have read that the resolution cell is a function of the angle of cone times the altitude height of the optics. But I find it confusing when the cone contains many resolution cells. So I have to ask; does the cone have a minimum angular spread that generates the maximum spatial resolution of 1 resolution cell and a maximum angular spread that generates the minimum spatial resolution of many resolution cells?
