An orthophoto or orthoimage is an image that is free of distortion (it has been ortho-rectified) and which is characterized by a uniform scale over its entire surface. Unlike an uncorrected aerial photograph, an orthophotograph can be used to measure true distances, because it is an accurate representation of the Earth’s surface, having been adjusted for topographic relief, lens distortion, and camera tilt. We are proud to offer this service to companies in many fields. Call us today for more information.

An orthophoto, orthophotograph or orthoimage is an aerial photograph or image geometrically corrected (“orthorectified”) such that the scale is uniform: the photo has the same lack of distortion as a map. These maps are created by flying using a gps and a unified system that ties the photos all together.
An aerial photograph that has been geometrically corrected (orthorectified) such that the scale of the photograph is uniform, meaning that the photo can be considered equivalent to a map. This creates a regulator and permanent record for but maintenance as well as liability assurances and create a 3D map time lapse of assets and commercial spaces.
Orthophotograph can also be used by developers to give them the ability to visit a site before the works starts. Detailed tours that augment planning can be used for orientation for everyone from gardeners to city planners.
