Breakthrough in Automatic Analysis of Aerial Images

At this year's CeBIT in Hannover, Germany, to be held from 6th to 10th March 2012, GTA will be presenting a prototype of a new Tridicon software version that enables the detection of 3D objects such as buildings without the need for 2D vector data (e.g. building outlines). Instead, stereo aerial images are the only source material needed for automatic 3D object reconstruction.   This development is said to revolutionise the production of 3D geodata worldwide. Additionally, GTA will be presenting the cutting-edge versions of its well known software products Tridicon 3D for the automatic production of 3D building models,... (read more)
