I noticed this while working on a new tileset for the non-iso (i.e. vertical
sides) hex topography.

There is a large amount of whitespace above unit graphics in the city overview
window, specifically the panels showing supported and present units. Besides
just looking a bit sloppy, it means that less screen space is available for
things like the city map and improvements list. This is especially relevant
for users with low screen resolutions.

It doesn't seem to be affected by offsets in the tilespec file. And the
whitespace isn't present in amplio2, which has an iso rectangular topography.

Following are some of the relevant tilespec values for the images provided.
Keep in mind that the offset values are all necessary to keep the units
aligned with the grid, and that the HP bars can't be moved by offsets. I think
it's also worth noting that the y offsets for the two hex tilesets are much
larger than those needed in amplio2. In my own set, the pink hexes are guides
I used to help me line up the unit graphics with the grid.

My set:
normal_tile_width  = 128
normal_tile_height = 126
unit_flag_offset_x = 0
unit_flag_offset_y = 63
unit_offset_x = 0
unit_offset_y = 63

normal_tile_width  = 40
normal_tile_height = 72
unit_flag_offset_x = 1
unit_flag_offset_y = 59
unit_offset_x = 4
unit_offset_y = 57

normal_tile_width  = 96
normal_tile_height = 48
unit_flag_offset_x = 25
unit_flag_offset_y = 16
unit_offset_x = 19
unit_offset_y = 18
