Leica Geosystems Geospatial Imaging joins 50th Photogrammetric Week

Leica Geosystems highlighted its complete digital workflow at Photogrammetric Week 2005 and announceed EADS Astrium purchase of Leica ADS40.

Leica Geosystems Geospatial Imaging will be a participating partner in the 50th Photogrammetric Week in Stuttgart, Germany on 5-9 September. Throughout the week, experts from Leica Geosystems will host presentations and demonstrations highlighting its offering of hardware and software products.

Leica Geosystems presentations during the conference will cover a range of topics including innovations in airborne sensors, and trends in sensor and data fusion. Demonstrations will include an illustration of the digital workflow using Leica Geosystems software with Leica ADS40 Airborne Digital Sensor and Leica ALS50 Airborne Laser Scanner data, as well as overviews of the processing workflow of both hardware products.

Originated in 1909 by astronomer Carl Pulfrich, this annual event has taken place at Stuttgart University since 1973. Today, Photogrammetry Week enjoys international recognition as a platform for photogrammetry professionals from around the globe to present new innovations, upgrade knowledge and exchange experiences.

Along with its participation in the conference, Leica Geosystems is pleased to announce that EADS Astrium, a world leader in the design and manufacture of satellite systems, has purchased a Leica ADS40 Airborne Digital Sensor.

EADS Astrium is part of EADS, the global leader in aerospace, defense and related services. EADS Astrium, as itself and through its subsidiaries INFOTERRA and ISTAR, has an extensive experience in both the acquisition and processing of digital imagery acquired from pushbroom sensors, based upon its SPOT satellite family and its unique digital automated processing chain PIXEL FACTORYTM.

EADS Astrium is now grouping its imagery application and services companies under the umbrella of Infoterra Global to create one of the world's leading suppliers of value-added products and services derived from satellite and remotely sensed aerial data.

Procuring the Leica ADS40 will enable Infoterra Global to provide both global digital aerial and satellite services to the market, including fast accurate output for photogrammetric applications such as color and true orthophoto production, feature extraction, 3D city mapping, and value-added remote sensing applications, particularly within the European GMES (Global Monitoring of the Environment and Security) Program.

The ADS40, an all-digital aerial sensor, enables customers to collect aerial imagery and return from a flight mission ready to process and archive digital data. Its innovative line scanner principle (capturing imagery looking forward, backward and nadir from an aircraft) provides wide area coverage, and simultaneously captures multispectral data with the help of four multispectral lines. It can deliver both color and false color infrared imagery from one flight mission. Coupling the ADS40 capabilities with the EADS Astrium automated processing digital laboratory, Pixel Factory allows fast output of unique imagery products such as TrueOrthoTM, extremely dense Digital Elevation Model, and automated Evolution Map.
