Aerial Triangulation Module for Photogrammetry Suite

SimActive, the Canadian developer of photogrammetry software, has announced the introduction of aerial triangulation (AT) as part of its Correlator3D photogrammetry suite. SimActive’s AT is an automated process based on unique algorithms for tie point extraction and advanced minimisation techniques for bundle adjustment. Leveraging the GPU and multi-core CPUs, rapid AT is possible allowing entire projects to be processed within minutes. SimActive designed the module to achieve the highest productivity with the capability of processing even the most demanding of projects, such as those from UAV platforms using consumer grade cameras with only GPS information. Through intense research and development,... (read more)

Photogrammetry Tool for UAV Land Surveying Missions

Before the introduction of small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for aerial photogrammetry, planes, helicopters and metric cameras were used. Aerial mapping projects were often not only costly, but also complex due to the images being taken from high altitudes. UAVs have provided more affordable and faster aerial mapping solutions. When it comes to planning survey missions for small UAVs, UgCS is suitable software for the job. It supports most UAV platforms and provides useful tools such as a photogrammetry tool and an image geotagging tool. The photogrammetry tool in UgCS (designed by SPH Engineering) allows creating and flying photogrammetry missions... (read more)

Oblique Airborne Photogrammetry: Users' and Vendors' Views

Today, oblique airborne images are a powerful source of geodata, particularly for applications in urban areas. Although the cost of capturing is higher, object identification and creation of dense 3D point clouds is easier and more reliable compared to conventional vertical imagery. To better understand the current practice and possible user needs, the EuroSDR initiated a survey on the use and expectations of obliques. The questionnaire went online in spring 2014 and was targeted at both users and providers of hardware, software and services. Here, the key findings from the survey are summarised. In recent years, aerial multi-camera systems which... (read more)

Photogrammetry out of the Dark Room

GIM Interviews Remi Jean, President DVP-GS and Vice-president and Partner Groupe ALTA
DVP-GS is a small Canada-based business founded in 1988 to market software products resulting from research into digital photogrammetry at Laval University. This month’s interviewee, Remi Jean, president DVP-GS, is very optimistic about the future of photogrammetry: "It is only a question of time before we see a significant increase in the demand for quality data. Photogrammetry has definitely come out of the shadows - or the dark room!" What are your main types of products and how much does each contribute to your turnover? We hold the specialised niche of vectorial-data extraction from aerial, satellite and non-conventional geospatial imagery.... (read more)

Wingtra Drone Sets New Benchmark in Photogrammetry

With the launch of the WingtraOne post-processed kinematic (PPK) drone, the Swiss manufacturer of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or ‘drones’) Wingtra aims to set a new benchmark in large-scale surveying and mapping applications. As the result of Wingtra’s collaboration with its industry-leading partners – photogrammetry software provider Pix4D, and the GNSS board and PPK provider Septentrio – WingtraOne PPK is now able to deliver orthomosaic maps and 3D models with an absolute accuracy down to 1cm. With the latest upgrade, the WingtraOne PPK drone can offer something that has never been seen before in drone photogrammetry: broad coverage and high... (read more)

Technology Innovation in Photogrammetry Award for Microsoft

Microsoft Corporation, USA, and its subsidiary Vexcel Imaging, Austria, were the winners of the Technology Innovation in Photogrammetry award at the Geospatial World Forum Conference for the company's UltraCamXp Wide Angle digital aerial camera and for the monolithic stitching capability of its UltraMap workflow software. The honour was received on 18th January 2011 in Hyderabad, India, at a ceremony attended by more than 800 delegates. The UltraCamXp Wide Angle camera, released in September 2009, features a proprietary, high-performance, high-resolution lens system with a shorter focal length than the UltraCamXp. This allows the sensor to deliver the same ground sample distance... (read more)

Building a Stable UAV for Photogrammetry

CopterSystems is a manufacturer of high-end copter solutions for a variety of applications. Roman Paulus, the founder and CEO of the company, was one of the pioneers in using UAV technology for photogrammetry and other sensor-based airborne applications in Germany. Recently, more and more potential customers have been approaching CopterSystems and asking for Phase One cameras as sensor options for UAVs. One of the camera features that stood out was the pinpoint accuracy; all cameras employ mechanisms to solidly lock their lens to the camera body. The demand reached a point when CopterSystems decided to develop a special UAV for Phase One iXU cameras,...
