It is an image that has been orthorectified or whether it has been geometrically corrected to eliminate distortions and coincide with a parallel projection plane, thus allowing the use of two-dimensional measurements in various CAD and GIS software.
The advantage of including a geo-referenced orthophoto in a project is the richness of detail that can be obtained in addition to the normal topographic survey.
