SimActive Used to Validate Accuracy of DJI Phantom 4 RTK

SimActive, a Canadian deveoper of photogrammetry software, has announced that Correlator3D is being used in Japan for mapping projects acquired by the DJI Phantom 4 RTK. A full-scale validation was done in the mountains near Hiroshima with a unit flown by SimActive's Japanese partner Mirukuru and customer Ace-1. “Considering that the data was acquired and processed directly in the field in record time, the level of detail that is visible and measurable in Correlator3D is stunning,” said Mr Shinji Inaba, technical manager at Mirukuru.“We had independently set up five checkpoints and the residuals are consistently in the 5cm range, both...

Newly Launched Leica GNSS RTK Rover Equipped with Visual Positioning

Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, has unveiled the Leica GS18 I, a versatile, GNSS RTK rover with visual positioning. The GS18 I allows users to capture points of interest from a distance and measure points from the images in the field or in the office. Visual positioning technology – sensor fusion combining GNSS, IMU and a camera – allows users to reach previously inaccessible or obstructed points safely and efficiently. Visual positioning is based on photogrammetric technology with near real-time data processing, allowing surveyors to check the quality of their data while on site. “The GS18 I and the workflow in...
