Point Cloud Processing

Leica Geosystems announces the exclusive distribution of RealityLINx Model 5.4 - powered by Leica point cloud Engine (pcE) technology. RealityLINx Model 5.4 speeds and simplifies the processing of as-built laser scans into intelligent models that feed into popular 3D plant design software and into INOVx plant asset management software. The new Leica pcE foundation has enabled third-party software developer and Leica Geosystems business partner, INOVx, to add more powerful and flexible point cloud capabilities to RealityLINx Model software. RealityLINx Model v5.4 offers advantages over both prior versions of RealityLINx Model and alternate paths from scans to intelligent models in plant... (read more)

TerraPos Post-processing Software

The Norwegian company Terratec has introduced software capable of accurate positioning based on post-processing of GPS-observations, without the use of reference stations or DGPS services. Typical accuracy for kinematic applications are 3cm horizontally and 4cm vertically (RMS). This level of accuracy makes the software unique worldwide. TerraPos utilises precise orbits and clock corrections for the satellites, together with advanced error modelling to produce positions with impressing accuracy. Typpical RMS for a kinematic survey is 3cm horizontally and 4cm vertically. The result is an excellent tool for positioning in applications allowing for post-processing, such as airborne photogrammetric or Lidar operations, seabed... (read more)

Magellan’s BLADE GNSS Signal Processing

Magellan (France) has announced its BLADE technology, a proprietary GNSS processing solution that makes possible centimetre-level accuracy for real-time and post-processing surveys and mapping operations. Magellan’s BLADE (Base Line Accurate Determination Engine) combines ranging and carrier phase data from two satellite systems, GPS and SBAS, for superior satellite coverage and signal reliability to enable rapid, centimetre-level solutions.   It is the first GNSS processing system that uses SBAS ranging and carrier phase measurements in the RTK data processing. These SBAS measurements, which are GPS-like, improve satellite geometry to allow centimetre-level accuracies to be achieved in a shorter time compared to... (read more)

Automated Processing of Oblique Imagery

Connectivity Graph to Cope with Tilted Views
Oblique multi-camera systems are rapidly maturing and expanding the market for airborne technology and services. Because datasets of oblique images are large, automated processing is a necessity. Here, the authors present a workflow for the automated orientation of large oblique blocks using a connectivity graph and discuss automated dense matching of oblique images. Oblique airborne multi-camera systems are increasingly complementing traditional vertical views. Previously hidden façades and building footprints are unveiled in oblique views, which makes oblique imagery useful for 3D city modelling and cadastral purposes as well as emergency rapid response and scene interpretation. In the past, the spotlight... (read more)

Lidar Post-processing in Global Mapper

Blue Marble Geographics has been selected to present a paper on post-processing Lidar data with Global Mapper at the European Lidar Mapping Forum (ELMF) conference in the beautiful city of Salzburg, Austria. Blue Marble’s geospatial data manipulation, visualisation and conversion solutions are used worldwide by thousands of GIS analysts at software, oil and gas, mining, civil engineering, surveying, and technology companies, as well as governmental and university organisations. Global Mapper, which handles all versions of LAS data including 1.4 and LAS zip, has many great tools for post-processing Lidar data. Blue Marble President, Patrick Cunningham, was asked to speak about... (read more)

Data Acquisition and Processing Systems for ALOS

Vexcel Corporation (Canada) has taken the lead in providing data acquisition and processing systems for the Japanese Advanced Land Observation Satellite (ALOS) launched 23 January of this year. In preparation of this landmark event, Vexcel has developed ALOS ground systems and processing solutions for organisations wishing to leverage the benefits of the spacecraft's onboard instruments: the Panchromatic Remote-sensing Instrument of Stereo Mapping (PRISM), the Advanced Visible and Near Infrared Radiometer-2 (AVNIR-2) and Phased Array L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (PALSAR) sensors. PALSAR is designed to allow day-and-night observations and is capable of producing imagery up to ten-metres in resolution. The sensor... (read more)
