Product Constraints

The Nearmap True Ortho product is derived from the Nearmap 3D reconstruction and could be considered a flattened textured mesh. Objects poorly reconstructed in 3D will also lack high resolution in the True Ortho product.

Although Nearmap's True Ortho is an image similar in appearance to the regular vertical (ortho) product, it has a 15cm pixel size and is lower in resolution that the standard product.
