Lidar Rectification Software

OLMS V1.0 (Optech Lidar Mapping Suite V1.0) is a new software package for Optech ALTM Airborne Laser Terrain Mapper clients. It enables users to maximise lidar accuracies over large project areas in a production environment. Incorporating batch-mode processing capability, OLMS V1.0 automates production processing of multi-mission data collections, and includes multi-threaded and distributed processing capabilities to increase processing efficiency even further. "Optimising lidar data accuracies by minimising flight-line to flight-line variations is a standard workflow process," says Michael Sitar, Optech's Airborne Products Manager. "As manufacturers, we have the unique ability to incorporate our proprietary lidar sensor optical models, thus enabling... (read more)

Open Source Software

As the internet bubble approached bursting point, voices arose against manufacturers who entrenched their software products within monopolistic bastions; in particular the Microsoft (quasi) monopoly became the target of verbal attack and lawsuits. At the turn of the millennium Microsoft controlled over 80% of the market in operating systems and 90% of the business-applications market. Nevertheless, the company denied anti-competitiveness, arguing that the software market had benefited greatly from its efforts leading to standardisation and relatively low-cost software for the millions.Escaping Monopoly Monopolisation is inherent to the capitalist system; today’s many takeovers, whether mutually agreed or hostile, are witness to...
