An orthophoto is an aerial image with the same geometric properties as a map. Unlike an uncorrected aerial photograph, an orthophoto has equal scale everywhere and is correctly located on the earth's surface. With orthophoto, correct measurements, visualization and analysis can be made directly in the detailed image.


Customers across the public and private sectors rely on orthophotos to obtain accurate geometric information on natural resources, built areas and infrastructure.

The quality of the orthophoto depends on the resolution and visual quality of the aerial images, the quality of the image orientation, and the quality of the work performed during the orthophoto production itself.

At Field, we have an advantage as a total supplier controlling all contributing processes — aerial photography, navigation processing, image orientation, production of elevation models, map compilation and orthophoto production. We have specialist expertise and experience within all involved disciplines.  
We perform quality controls during production to ensure the quality is good and connected with the completion and approval stage. The entire orthophoto mosaic is checked systematically. Control measurements are made against reference data, and we document the production and achieved quality.  
A self-evident layer in GIS databases is often used for mapping and planning area and resource use as a basis for design work, area analysis, and photorealistic presentations for decision makers and the public. With very simple software, the user can measure and analyze with the orthophoto as a background.
