Presidential Order no. 6/2012 mentioned explicitly to use ortho-rectifed image for the purposes of national program done by all Indonesian governmental agencies. Policy of uses, control quality, processing and distribution of high resolution of satellite data are regulated by this Order. There are some advantages of implementing this Order particularly in accelerating the national geospatial data and information, however, without synergy use of high resolution imagery (including integration, coordination and harmonization), in the present condition so far some obstacles have been discovered.  Without  synergic actions or approaches, the Order will not provide optimal impact as the main objectives to make more efficient in using the national budget. This article describes the needs of synergy approach to implement the Presidential Order no. 6/2012 concerning the uses, distribution of high remotely sensed imageries.
