BlomORTHO imagery dates from 2005 and is updated on a regular basis; the mosaic product is produced from Nadir vertical imagery that has been geometrically corrected to represent its true ground position. The imagery is then processed into georeferenced tiles, normally 1km² in size. BlomORTHO can be delivered offline in georeferenced tiles or can be accessed online via the BlomURBEX™ service.
