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...

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)

SimActive Enables Processing in the Cloud

Photogrammetry software developer SimActive has announced that processing in the cloud is now officially supported by Correlator3D. Users can subscribe to an online computing service, such as Amazon EC2, and run Correlator3D on a virtual machine.  Correlator3D is a patented end-to-end photogrammetry solution for the generation of high-quality geospatial data from satellite and aerial imagery, including UAVs. The main advantage of procesing in the cloud is the capability to use multiple licenses as required. It permits an on-demand deployment of the software on several processing machines, without any computer hardware. The new option allows customers to continuously adjust their processing...

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)
