An ortho mapping workspace is an ArcGIS Pro subproject that is dedicated to ortho mapping workflows. It is a container within an ArcGIS Pro project folder that binds together all the resources and derived files (artifacts) that belong to a single image collection in one ortho mapping task. In particular, it contains an image collection to be adjusted, which is managed using the mosaic dataset data model, the generated ortho mapping products, internal files used in the adjustment process, and necessary information that manages the workspace.
You can copy, delete, and rename an ortho mapping workspace. You can have more than one ortho mapping workspace within a project, where each workspace opens its own map view. It is recommended that you use one project for each ortho mapping task. You can use multiple ortho mapping workspaces to manage the different versions of your ortho mapping tasks.
Each ortho mapping workspace is capable of processing drone imagery, satellite imagery (with a Rational Polynomial Coefficient [RPC] camera model), digital aerial imagery, and scanned aerial imagery. You will need to choose the corresponding type when you create an ortho mapping workspace for your data. Ortho mapping workspaces can be created for your image collections using the Ortho Mapping wizards on the Imagery tab. It can also be imported or added from an existing ortho mapping workspace.

There are several types of ortho mapping workspaces that can be created for your image data:
