SimActive Introduces New Drone Processing Service

Canadian photogrammetry software manufacturer SimActive has launched a new unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) data processing service based on Correlator3D. Clients can now upload full projects and have SimActive experts generate optimal results from their imagery, including DSMs, DTMs, 3D models and orthomosaics. As opposed to common cloud-based solutions where outputs are generated automatically and delivered as-is, the new offering includes quality control by photogrammetry specialists. Manual tagging of ground control points is also performed as part of the service. “We are glad to allow clients with no experience in photogrammetry an access to a high-end processing software”, said Dr Philippe...

Leica IPAS PPP Post Processing Software

Leica Geosystems (Switzerland) has announced IPAS PPP, a new post processing software package within the IPAS product family. It provides high accuracy position and velocity determination using the data from a single GNSS receiver. The software provides accurate solutions for remote areas as no reference station data is required. “Flying without ground reference stations is the opportunity we now can offer our sensor users with IPAS PPP”, describes product manager Tauno Saks. This new post processing software works with Leica Geosystems Airborne Sensors, such as the Leica ADS40-II Airborne Digital Sensor and the Leica ALS50 Airborne Laser Scanner, and is... (read more)

Optimising Quality Control for Lidar Data Processing

Lidar systems on terrestrial and airborne mapping platforms have been proven to be an effective tool for generating highly accurate, dense point clouds for a variety of applications. However, satisfying the needs of those applications requires rigorous quality control (QC) of the point cloud. By Dr Ayman Habib, professor and head, Department of Geomatics Engineering, University of Calgary, Canada To date, most QC activities have focused on checking the positional quality of the point cloud (ensuring that the coordinates of the derived point cloud are free from systematic errors), which is justifiable given the relative maturity of Lidar compared to...

Post-Processing Extension for ArcPad 8

GPSDifferential for ESRI ArcPad 8 is a post-processing software extension for the MobileMapper 6 with ArcPad 8 mapping application. This application enables the MobileMapper 6 GIS/GPS handheld receiver users to achieve sub-metre accuracy for GIS data collection and mapping.   GPSDifferential for ArcPad 8 software extension automatically logs the raw data that is required for reliable sub-metre post-processed differential corrections, even where real-time corrections are not available. The raw data file stored by this software extension can be post-processed using MobileMapper 6 Office, which is included in the GPSDifferential for ArcPad 8 offer. Post-processed data is exported with attributes in... (read more)

Software for Processing Massive Terrain Datasets

Software based on the Scalable Algorithm (SCALGO) technology can handle larger terrain datasets on a normal desktop than most current software, thus eliminating the need for accuracy-decreasing data thinning. The use of these mathematical and algorithmic techniques also means that the software works demonstrably efficiently on all input datasets, delivering a completely specified output without the use of cumbersome work-flows such as those introduced by data tiling.     The technology is based on more than two decades of basic and applied research on I/O-efficient and geometric algorithms at Center for Massive Data Algorithmics (MADALGO) at Aarhus University in Denmark...
