Orca Billing Info

Overview's Orca offering is billed through the Microsoft Azure Synapse Analytics marketplace. The marketplace enables transactions to be handled efficiently and securely.

After entering billing information in the marketplace, registering via the web app, and receiving a customer license number, Orca can be run on any images and the account will be billed.


Orca's services are priced at 1.50 USD per km2. Orca is designed to work on imagery with a resolution of ~50cm and is therefore not operable with imagery outside of the 40-60cm range.
