WHAT IS AN ORHTOMOSAIC IMAGE?
An orthomosaic image is a high-resolution composite image created by stitching together multiple overlapping images taken from a drone or other aerial platform. The term "ortho" refers to the fact that the image has been corrected for distortion, such as from camera tilt, and is geometrically accurate, meaning it can be used to measure distances and areas.
Orthomosaic images are used in a variety of applications including:
Surveying and Mapping
Orthomosaic images can be used to create detailed and accurate maps of large areas, including topographical and land use data.
Orthomosaic images can be used to monitor changes in land cover, track the progression of natural disasters, and identify illegal activities such as deforestation.
Orthomosaic images can be used for urban planning, to monitor the development of infrastructure, identify land use changes and measure the urban sprawl.
Orthomosaic images can be used to map crop health and identify areas of stress or disease, as well as measure crop yields.
Overall, Orthomosaic images are widely used in many fields, they provide a cost-effective and efficient way to monitor and map large areas, with high level of details, providing a wealth of information that can be used to improve the performance of various operations and activities.
