Orthophotography

Orthophotos are orthogonal aerial photographs that are free of tilt and camera distortions and are also free of relief distortions.

Our systems execute aerial LIDAR topography at the same time as rectified orthophotography with direct georeferences. The data is digitally corrected to represent an orthogonal projection with no perspective flaws, allowing us to accurately generate plans and maps, rather than an aerial photograph. Aerial photographs will always present the deformations caused by the perspective of the camera and the height or speed at which the camera is moving.
