SURE (.ori)

The SURE software's native orientation format.


  • In order to define the .ori orientation files as input for SURE, a folder containing one .ori file for each image is required.

  • Make sure, that the folder containing the .ori files contains only this kind of .ori files with the exact same count as your imagery. Images without a correspondent .ori file will not be considered for processing.

  • All provided 3rd-party supported orientation formats will be converted to this format during processing which will be used for internal processing. After the analysis stage, you can find these files in the Ori folder inside your project root folder.

  • Each ASCII .ori file contains:

    • Image ID to which the file refers to;
