Leica XPro 4.3 HiRes Ortho Processing

Leica XPro has been updated with several new features. Leica XPro 4.3 includes fast high-resolution orthophoto processing of RGB imagery by combining the HiRes data acquisition mode implemented in the Leica ADS product line with post-processing algorithms. With the new Leica HiRes capability orthophotos and orthomaps can be produced from imagery captured at up to two times higher flying altitude, thereby reducing flight lines and data acquisition costs. Another new feature has been added to the Leica XPro Image Viewer. The new drawing tool allows the operator during the quality control process to highlight particular image areas that require a...

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...
