Leica will sell and support the EROS imagery import module as part of SOCET SET.

Leica Geosystems has entered an agreement with IIT Ltd. to sell and support the EROS imagery import module to customers worldwide as part of SOCET SET, the advanced digital photogrammetry solution. The module enables users to access EROS-A1 satellite data in order to triangulate the imagery, extract data in stereo including DTMs and features, and make end products such as ortho-mosaics.

With the IIT EROS import software and the SOCET SET Multi-Sensor Triangulation module, users can import and read satellite imagery into rigorous sensor models and triangulate data from EROS, SPOT, QuickBird and other satellites. The EROS satellite carries an electro-optical camera and has the ability for broad area, high-resolution coverage of the earth.

SOCET SET handles triangulation, orientation, feature collection, digital terrain models (DTMs), orthophotos, mosaics, fly throughs, and other photogrammetric processes for scanned film imagery, airborne digital imagery and satellite data. SOCET SET can also export the triangulated imagery to ERDAS IMAGINE® or other postprocessing systems to produce products such as perspective scenes in IMAGINE VirtualGIS.

SOCET SET’s EROS imagery import module is available from Leica Geosystems effective immediately. For more information about Leica Geosystems GIS & Mapping Division or its products and services, contact: +1 404 248 9000, toll free: +1 877 463 7327, or visit
