What is an orthophoto?

An orthophoto or orthophotograph is an aerial photograph that has been geometrically corrected ("orthorectified") such that the scale of the photograph is uniform, meaning that the photo can be considered equivalent to a map. Unlike an uncorrected aerial photograph, an orthophotograph can be used to measure true distances, because it is an accurate representation of the earth's surface, having been adjusted for topographic relief, lens distortion, and camera tilt.

What does the resolution mean?

The resolution used to describe orthophoto is the amount of ground distance each pixel of the image covers. The smaller the resolution the more detail in the image. For example in a 15cm resolution image you would be able to identify man hole covers, catch basins and people.
