Leica Offers Compliance Path to all GNSS systems

By the end of this decade, four independent Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) will be operational. Today only the American GPS system is fully operational, and the Russian GLONASS system is rapidly approaching full operational status. These two systems will soon be complimented by the European Galileo system, and the Chinese Compass system. A four constellation GNSS is just around the corner to deliver improved GNSS performance and efficiency, and Leica Geosystems is ready. Both China and Europe have begun the deployment of their GNSS systems with the launch of test satellites. Current planning shows that the Chinese system, known... (read more)

UAS Captures Near-infra-red Mapping Data

DroneMetrex has announced that near-infra-red (NIR) mapping data has been captured with the TopoDrone-100. The radiometric quality has been achieved because DroneMetrex specialists performed the necessary camera modifications and have designed the external filters specifically to match the requirements for accurate, discriminative vegetation mapping. According to DroneMetrex, this is the first time in the UAV’s mapping history that NIR imagery has been captured at this level of quality. From the one flight sortie, TopoDrone-100 users are able to perform vegetation analysis mapping as well as 3D contours/DTM mapping. DroneMetrex offers their Extended Spectrum Mapping (ESM) camera modification as an option... (read more)
