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...

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...

Demand for AUSPOS Processing System Continues after US Shutdown

During the US shutdown, around half of the more than 5,500 GPS datasets processed with the aid of Geoscience Australia’s AUSPOS global positioning system were from institutions and individuals based in the United States. Since that time, almost one third of the 3,200 processing requests have come from North America. AUSPOS is a service that allows users to submit logged GPS data to Geoscience Australia’s website where it is processed with respect to a global GPS tracking network providing coordinates with centimetre-level or better accuracy. AUSPOS is used extensively by the Australian geospatial, mining and construction industries to establish precise... (read more)
