The Advanced Ortho Series offers two product lines differentiated by aesthetics, and three options for accuracy within each line, to ensure your imagery needs are met:

  • Ortho Vision – For professional users who need quality images for analysis and identification. Worldwide coverage; high throughput and expedited turnaround for large areas.
  • Ortho Vision Premium – For users who need the best visual appeal available. Highly processed for superior aesthetics. Many areas such as major world cities area are available off-the-shelf.


  • Higher resolution for the finest detail available
  • Superior coverage is provided by maintaining the largest high-resolution imagery archive in the world, continually supplying relevant imagery, information, and insight 
  • Industry-leading accuracy allows precise measurements and uniformity, as well as consistency with other data sets
  • Higher throughput and faster turnaround time all for mass deliveries of Ortho products in as little as two days
  • Replicable and automated processing ensures each product has proper attributes and complete image metadata
  • Premium aesthetics with little or no cloud cover, haze, or snow; geometric brakes minimized, seasonally consistent, radiometrically and tonally balanced, enhanced color contract, clarity and sharpness, seamless feathered cutlines
  • World-class processing capabilities active 24/7/365
  • Can be acquired directly from the ImageLibrary or via a new collection request
  • The DigitalGlobe satellite constellation is capable of collecting up to 2 million km2 per day, capturing roughly four times the Earth's landmass each year
