Sky tiling, field overlaps, and instrument rotations
The combination of pointing locations and instrument rotations will dicate the FOV-scale structure of the LSST's sky coverage. The focal plane CCD layout is not a space-filling shape. I propose a two hour discussion to explore the impacts of different sky tiling and field overlap alternatives, with the specific goal of establishing an appropriate suite of metrics.
