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...

Global Mapper 14.1 Features Lidar Processing Capability

Blue Marble Geographics has announced the release of Global Mapper version 14.1. This update to the company’s desktop GIS translation software offers many new and improved features and functions, including a significant improvement in the ability to process massive amounts of Lidar point cloud data. Global Mapper 14.1 provides an increase in Lidar processing and display speed and the ability to view and process point files in the hundreds of millions range. This is beneficial for previewing the data before creating a gridded surface model and includes several options for filtering the data during import and for rendering the point... (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. 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 image-based mapping. Nevertheless, end users are mainly interested in derived products from such data (e.g.... (read more)

ColourCloud Processing Hosted on Google Cloud Platform

NCTech, a developer of reality imaging systems, has announced its ColourCloud software is being hosted on Google Cloud Platform. At the Google Cloud Next ’17 conference, Intel confirmed that the next-generation Intel Xeon processor family (also known as Skylake) is now available on Google Cloud Platform. Google Cloud Platform is the first to offer cloud services based on Skylake. The Intel Xeon processor supports Intel AVX-512 instructions to run compute-intensive workloads more efficiently, such as high-performance computing, video processing and data analytics. This development provides powerful support for the capture and processing of 3D imaging. With ColourCloud now hosted on Google... (read more)

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)

Sentinel-5P Atmospheric Data Processing Begins

Sentinel-5P data open to the public, and Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS) has begun processing with detailed forecasts anticipated later in 2018. The Sentinels are a fleet of satellites central to Europe’s Earth-observation programme, Copernicus, addressing six main thematic areas: atmosphere, climate change, marine environment, emergency management, land and security. Atmospheric monitoring mission Sentinel-5P, the precursor to Sentinel-5, has just graduated from its official commissioning and validation phase, within which preliminary data was evaluated and instruments were calibrated. Early data was compared with the CAMS forecasting system, which allowed detection and solving of ‘teething’ issues. TROPOMI (Tropospheric Monitoring Instrument) gathers... (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...
