Oblique Data Preparation and Import Templates

This page gives an overview on the Orbit oblique mapping import templates and how to prepare your data for import.
It is strongly recommended to read first Understand Oblique data in Orbit.

Orbit imports Supported Oblique Resources into an Orbit Oblique Project using intelligent Import Templates.

An Orbit import template is a predefined set configurations, containing all technical details of the oblique mapping system. A template is exactly configured according a given setup, used sensors and available resources. This technique simplifies and standardizes the workflow to import a well known set of oblique resources.

The generic and Visionmap templates are by default available after installation.

To add your own custom import template :

  1. Copy the template to following directory
    <Orbit installation directory>/program/ext/obliques/project/template/
  2. Restart Orbit
  3. Select and use template via Import Project.
