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)

Point Cloud Solution for Processing Laser Scan Data

With Leica Cyclone 9.0, a point cloud solution for processing laser scan data, Leica Geosystems HDS has introduced patent-pending innovations for greater project efficiency. According to the company, these advances aim to benefit both field and office via significantly faster and easier scan registration plus quicker deliverable creation thanks to better 2D and 3D drafting tools and steel modelling. Cyclone 9.0 is developed to allow users to scale easily for larger, more complex projects while consistently ensuring high-quality deliverables. When Leica Geosystems pioneered cloud-to-cloud registration, it enabled users to accurately execute laser scanning projects without having to physically place special... (read more)

Orbit GT Direct Export Added to RIEGL Data Processing Software

Orbit GT has announced the RIEGL’s newest release of RiPROCESS standard includes direct export to the Orbit software portfolio. This export function is set to save RIEGL system owners much time and effort when exporting their data and loading into an Orbit product. This new tool is developed to add all details of the data collection configuration for optimal support in Orbit. It also exports spherical imagery to the equirectangular standard delivering access to high-quality data through an intuitive interface. Both companies believe this direct link between the RIEGL and Orbit GT software is a very attractive solution to bring... (read more)

Upgrades and New Features VisionMap Image Processing Suite

VisionMap, a leading provider of aerial survey and mapping systems, has released a new version of its A3 LightSpeed image processing suite. The new version includes several upgrades and new features. First is a new and improved task management mechanism, used for parallelisation of processing computations. This new task management enhances system scalability and performance. LightSpeed 3.2 was tested on extremely large projects, while performing AT on millions of frames simultaneously as several processing blocks. LightSpeed's user interface now includes additional user functionality. For example, users can more intuitively process imagery from multiple flights within the same project. The measurement...

Processing 40cm Products at European Space Imaging's DAF

European Space Imaging can now process 40cm imagery from WorldView satellites at its local Direct Access Facility (DAF) based near Munich, Germany. Imagery at 40cm is available from archive data or for new tasking orders from the WorldView constellation. The above image of London illustrates the benefits of the higher-resolution imagery. As the pixels are smaller, an image at 40cm is clearly smoother and provides more visible information. The image exposes more detail which makes it easier to differentiate between objects. Also colour variation is better defined, said product order manger, Tine Flingelli, after running tests on this near to... (read more)

Topographic Laser Ranging and Scanning: Principles and Processing

  Compiled by editors Jie Shan and Charles K. Toth, this newly published book provides a comprehensive and in-depth treatment of Lidar as an accurate, direct method for 3D geo-data collection of urban and forested areas. A total of 29 authors, mostly European and North American academics, contribute to the nineteen chapters. Chapters 1 and 4 treat the fundamentals of ‘Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation', laser ranging and laser sensor calibration. As technologies rapidly evolve, these detailed descriptions of contemporary airborne Lidar systems and terrestrial laser scanners (Chapters 2 and 3 respectively) may soon lose currency. It may...

OGC Seeks Comments on Web Processing Service 2.0 Standard

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) membership is seeking public comment on the candidate OGC Web Processing Service (WPS) Version 2.0 Interface Standard. In many cases geospatial or location data, including data from sensors, must be processed before the information can be used effectively. The OGC Web Processing Service (WPS) Interface Standard provides a standard interface that simplifies the task of making computational processing services accessible via web services. Such services include well-known processes found in spatial extract, transform and load (ETL) software and GIS software as well as specialised processes such as coordinate transformation and spatial and temporal modelling and...
