The objective of this standard is to define the orthoimage theme of the digital geospatial data framework and envisioned by the FGDC . It is the intent of this standard to set a common baseline that will ensure the widest utility of digital orthoimagery for the user and producer communities through enhanced data sharing and the reduction of redundant data production.


The standard will describe processing, accuracy, reporting, and applications considerations for digital orthoimagery.
