The nature of off-axis undulator radiation is discussed. Of particular interest is coherent off-axis radiation, where the wavelengths of emission are longer than the electron bunch length. We show how this off-axis radiation may be used to measure relative electron bunch lengths. The theory is presented, and calculated spectra are presented in a number of cases of interest.
