Definitions for "Orthophotography"
A modified copy of a perspective photograph of the earth's surface with distortions due to tilt and relief removed.
An aerial photograph in which the distortions due to camera tilt and topographic relief have been removed. An orthophotograph has consistent scale throughout and can be used as a map.
Aerial photographs that more precisely show the features of the landscape, including those that might be important for agriculture such as slope or size of gullies, because they are corrected for distortion caused by tilt, curvature, and ground relief.
