We have a submarine cable project that will pass through some nearshore reefs.The reef distribution is patchy so we are planning to map these reef areas so we can orient the cable route to avoid the reefs. Since we have no budget for aerial photography and no satellite images are available, the best we can do is to use a helicopter to take the aerial photos in order to map the reef areas.
Can anyone suggest the ideal altitude and lens to be used (we have a 28-70 mm lens) for taking the picture? We are planning to map the reefs in a 1:25,000 map.
