UrbIS-Ortho

The UrbIS-Ortho product brings together a series of orthophoto plans covering the territory of the Brussels Region.

The UrbIS-Ortho product brings together a series of orthophoto plans covering the territory of the Brussels Region.

The orthophoto plans are the result of corrective processing of the aerial photographs to eliminate distortions due to relief and perspective. This produces metric-quality photos, on which it is possible to measure distances.

Unlike the images of the UrbIS-Fot product, orthophoto plans can be superimposed on the vector data of UrbIS. These rectified images retain all the richness of information of aerial photos and are an ideal basic tool for any Geographical Information System (G.I.S.).

The orthophoto plan describes the physical environment and its area occupation with improved geographical precision. Thus, the use of such a tool is ideal for spatial planning in the broader sense. The first orthophoto plan dates from 2006, produced from photos taken in 2004.
