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...

Icaros Launches New UAV Image Processing Software

Icaros, a provider of aerial imaging software, has released version 5.0 of OneButton Standard and Professional image processing software for unmanned aerial systems (UAS). The 5.0 release contains a significant number of major new features and hundreds of other improvements, including a new 2D and 3D map and model viewer. Icaros developed the OneButton family for geospatial end users to easily and automatically generate precise, fully orthorectified 2D maps and 3D models from frame-based aerial imaging systems. Originally engineered for manned aircraft sensors, the OneButton software has been modified to accommodate the unique collection conditions of UAS. OneButton is application... (read more)

Workshop on Oblique Aerial Cameras, Sensors and Data Processing

Geospatial data automatically generated from imagery is currently experiencing very positive momentum. This is thanks to the increasing quality of digital airborne imagery, developments and availability of oblique multicamera systems, innovations in dense image matching algorithms, automatic segmentation and classification algorithms. National Mapping and Cadastral Agencies (NMCAs) are following and considering such technological advances for changing their production pipelines. Meanwhile, photogrammetric companies are considering upgrading their airborne cameras to multi-view systems. These developments and considerations motivated the launch of past EuroSDR/ISPRS benchmarks on Multi-platform photogrammetry and High Density Aerial Image Matching and the organisation of the successful first EuroSDR/ISPRS workshop...

RIEGL Solution for 3D Digital Scene Processing

RIEGL has launched the RiSOLVE software package that allows the speed and ease needed to simplify the ‘field to office’ exchange and provides a fast workflow for true-colour 3D scene scanning. The software is especially developed for accident investigation and rapid deployment scene capture, where time is of the essence. RIEGL has been thoroughly field testing RiSOLVE for over 6 months to ensure it is effective in nearly all real-world conditions. With input from real users steady improvements were made and the Austria-based company is now confident that the algorithms behind the automation are ready for release. They have done... (read more)

SimActive Releases Version 8.2 for Processing of Multispectral Imagery

SimActive, one of the leading developers of photogrammetry software, has released Correlator3D version 8.2 with advanced processing capabilities of multispectral imagery. Supported sensors include the MicaSense RedEdge/Altum and the Parrot Sequoia. The new version allows automatic registration of multispectral as well as infrared images. The resulting fused data can be used in the software to produce digital surface models (DSMs) and digital terrain models (DTMs) and to generate multiband orthomosaics with perfect co-registration. “There is a growing need for multispectral sensors in agricultural applications such as crop management”, said Louis Simard, CTO at SimActive. “The new version allows our users to...

New Offline Post-processing Workflow for Trimble TerraFlex Software

The Trimble TerraFlex field software now supports the transfer of data between the field and office without the use of Trimble cloud services. The new software workflow – called offline data transfer – is possible through the integration of Trimble TerraFlex and the Trimble Positions Desktop add-in for Esri ArcGIS Desktop. TerraFlex is a field solution that enables mobile workers to easily collect, manage and edit their geospatial feature data. The new workflow provides an alternative to using Trimble cloud services for storing and transferring GIS feature data collected with the TerraFlex platform. In addition, TerraFlex field data collected via... (read more)

SimActive Adds Lidar to Point Cloud Processing Solution

In response to the growing use of Lidar, photogrammetry software developer SimActive has integrated a new Lidar workflow in its Correlator3D product. The capability enables users to import a point cloud in the software and to perform registration with an image dataset. Using Lidar as control eliminates the need for traditional ground control points (GCPs) during image processing. Registration occurs during aerial triangulation, leading to a precise alignment of imagery with the Lidar data. Following this, Correlator3D can output colourized point clouds as well as seamless orthomosaics. “Removing the need to manually tag GCPs facilitates the integration of Lidar data... (read more)
