An orthophoto, orthophotograph or orthoimage is an aerial photograph geometrically corrected ("orthorectified") such that the scale and overhead perspective is uniform. Orthophoto can be used just like a map to measure true direction and distances, because it is an accurate representation of the Earth's surface, having been adjusted for topographic relief, lens distortion, and camera tilt.

How To Use It?

Overhead views provide a quick way to assess the conditions at a site without having to leave your desk. Our imagery is high resolution and free of snow, cloud, and foliage so you can see features on the ground clearly. In combination with other mapping or on its own, orthophoto quickly adds value to any project.
