Pix4D Adds Editing Tool and Subscription Model

Pix4D, Switzerland, has released Pix4Dmapper, a software package with a fully integrated editing tool providing extended CAD and GIS possibilities. The rayCloud, included in Pix4Dmapper, combines the 3D point cloud with the original images for easy viewing as well as highly accurate semantic annotation and project improvement. Pix4Dmapper now is available both as a one-time-charge licence and on a monthly or yearly subscription basis. Orthomosaics, DSMs and point clouds generated with Pix4Dmapper achieve survey-grade accuracy from any aerial or oblique imagery, ranging from lightweight compact cameras used on UAVs (including GoPro, multi-spectral cameras and Fisheye lens) to SLR’s and large...

Aerial Mapping by Consumer Camcorders

Aerial Videography: Low-cost, Simple, Fast and Appropriate
Developing countries still have a need for mapping systems that are low-cost, simple to operate by local operators, fast in production and yet meet the needs of the application. A satellite mapping system can be a good choice, but cloud coverage and revisit time often limit its application, especially in tropical areas. The author shows that Aerial Videography (AV) mapping based on a consumer camcorder meets mapping requirements. Camcorders are low-cost, simple to operate and widely available. Compared to traditional metric aerial cameras, camcorders are far less accurate and have smaller fields of view. One of the strengths of AV... (read more)

Geneq Introduces New Multi-constellation GNSS Receiver for Survey

Geneq has announced the F90, a multi-constellation GNSS receiver with very high level of technology integration. The new product will fulfil the current surveyor’s demands in terms of performance, flexibility and cost-effectiveness. F90 tracks multi-constellations (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou) and can maximise the acquisition and tracking process with all-in-view GNSS satellite frequencies. Providing maximum performance for accuracy and real-time measurements, F90 also supports RTK correction service, including RTX service that can get centimetre accuracy without a base station. The F90, with its advanced technology, ensures high performance even in harsh environments such as under heavy canopy. Combining GNSS, 4G, Bluetooth... (read more)
