Aerial Photomap Production to the next Level

Production of aerial photography revolutionized
Aerial mapping company Bluesky has revolutionized its production of aerial photography, reducing the time taken to process the terabytes of data captured by more than 75 percent. Following a major research project, the team at Bluesky’s production facility has implemented a Vexcel UltraMap system which has allowed for the introduction of a continuous, uninterrupted processing workflow. By investing in an entirely new workflow, Bluesky has also improved the quality of the aerial images, reducing 'building lean' and image distortion and improving the accuracy of its digital height models. Bluesky’s investment in software follows the recent purchase of two UltraCam Eagle cameras,... (read more)
