Ortho Mapping in ArcGIS Pro: Creating a Workspace for Satellite Imagery

In this video, we’ll show you how to create a new ortho mapping workspace in ArcGIS Pro. A workspace is a sub-project in ArcGIS Pro,
and it’s the first step in working with ortho
mapping tools. These tools allow you to process drone,
satellite and aerial imagery to produce
georeferenced ortho products. Here we’ll look specifically
at how to create an orthomapping
workspace for Satellite imagery. To start, we’ll create a new
project in ArcGIS Pro. You can have multiple workspaces in one
project, and we recommend using one project
for each ortho mapping task, where multiple workspaces can represent
multiple versions of your task. Once you’ve created your project,
you’re ready to start creating
an ortho mapping workspace. Select the Imagery tab at the
top of your project, then click
New Workspace. In the Ortho Mapping Workspace wizard, on
the Workspace Configuration page, enter the Name of your workspace and some
descriptive information. The description is optional but it’s helpful for
organizational purposes and data management. Next, select Satellite as teh workspace type.
Click Next. On the Image Collection page, click the drop-
down menu to select the Sensor Type. See that there’s a long list of the sensor types
that are supported for ortho mapping
workspaces. In this case, we’ll select IKONOS as our sensor
type. Next , navigate to the folder containing all the
imagery you want to work with in your workspace. Your folder can contain subfolders with imagery. Click OK. At this point, you can change the spatial
reference, or take a look at the Data Loader
Options tab to refine your workspace. You can set your elevation source or your
processing templates, change the Band Combination, the Stretch
type, the Gamma stretch type, or the pre-
processing options. For now, we’ll leave everything as default and
click Finish. A new workspace is added to your project with
a log window showing you the progress of the
task. Youalso nowsee the Ortho Mapping
Contents View, which shows all the entities you will be working
with in your workspace. It has information like the name of your
workspace, the control points feature classes you will. be
working with in your adjustment, and the new mosaic dataset that was created
from your source data. You’ve now successfully created your ortho
mapping workspace using satellite imagery. You can use the Explore tool in the navigate
group to pan and zoom around your workspace
and tocheck out your data. The next step in the ortho mapping process is
to perform a block adjustment on your data. Check out our help documentation for next
steps and helpful workflows.
