When producing DSM, True Ortho and (Textured) DSM Mesh, best practice is to use Nadir frames only, even in the case of Nadir + Oblique camera systems. In such situations, restricting the imagery to the Nadir frames speeds up processing and guarantees higher quality results. The scenario Aerial Oblique is best suited for production of Point Clouds and Textured 3D Mesh Models.
