In air or satellite imagery, scenes are often captured with an overlap of 30-40% so that the images can be viewed in stereo (3D). This means that part of an image is present in many images, but from a different angle. An example of stereo overlap is the human eyes, which see the same objects from different points, with overlap, which allows the determination of distance and depth. This technique allows the measurement of the height of objects and of the topography, and is how many of the older topographic maps were made.

Look at the animal's eyes. If they are in the front of the head (like man) they have stereoscopic vision. If they are on the sides of the head (like most birds) they don't.

Stereoscopic microscopes, also called low-power microscopes, dissection microscopes, or inspection microscopes, are designed for viewing "large" objects at low magnifications. Unlike a compound microscope which provides an inverted 2-dimensional image, stereo microscopes provide an erect (upright and unreversed) stereoscopic (3-dimensional) image......

Some synonyms of the term overlap are extend along and fold over. The word overlap is defined as to lie over something else or the winged or extended part of an object.
