DigitalGlobe has now made available its new Advanced Ortho Series of products.

Consisting of the Ortho Vision and Ortho Vision Premium lines, which are based on customer aesthetics requirements, DigitalGlobe’s ability to provide the best quality orthos, faster and easier than ever before is now better suited to satisfy the diversified product needs of a growing number of imagery users.

The Ortho Vision line is designed for professional users in need of quality images for analysis and identification. Ortho Vision Premium imagery is tailored for users in need of the highest possible aesthetics. Images classified as Ortho Vision Premium will feature less than 3 percent cloud cover, geometric breaks less than one meter and tonally balanced imagery in addition to no haze, pollution or fog. Both the Vision and Vision Premium products are further segmented by levels of accuracy – Display (25.4 m CE90), Mapping (10.2 m CE90) and Precision (4.2 m CE90) – allowing users to select the accuracy level required for their applications. The Precision products offer industry-leading planimetric accuracy for precise measurements, uniformity and consistency with other datasets and the ability to derive the most accurate information. Higher throughput and faster turnaround time allow for mass deliveries of orthorectified imagery required for large projects or areas of interest. With the capability to process one million square kilometers of imagery per day – an area equivalent to the size of Egypt – Vision products can be processed and delivered in as little as 2 days. DigitalGlobe has more than one billion square kilometers of high-resolution imagery already collected and existing in the DigitalGlobe ImageLibrary ready for processing. Additionally, many areas are available off the shelf ready for immediate delivery.
