Leica Photogrammetry Suite V9.0 Delivers Productivity & Accuracy

Leica Geosystems Geospatial Imaging today announced Leica Photogrammetry Suite (LPS) Version 9.0. Aimed at high-volume production photogrammetry organizations, LPS 9.0 provides a more efficient means of editing seams for sizable projects that may involve a large number of images. This release also introduces Leica MosaicPro and makes available several innovative features, benefits and fixes. Updated versions of PRO600 9.0 and ORIMA DP for LPS 9.0 are also included with this release.

New features and enhancements in LPS 9.0 include:

  • Improved auto-correlation during manual point measurement in the Stereo Point Measurement tool
  • Seed DTM support in the Automatic Terrain Extraction module
  • The ability to edit terrain extraction properties for all image pairs in the Automatic Terrain Extraction module
  • CARTOSAT RPC model support
  • Graphical view for tie point patterns in LPS Core
  • APM success rate report
  • The ability to create empty terrain datasets in LPS Core
"LPS 9.0 was designed to provide enhanced capabilities for effectively managing large-scale projects," said Wendy Watson, Vice President Product Marketing, Leica Geosystems Geospatial Imaging. "With Leica MosaicPro, we are responding to our customers' needs for powerful mosaicking tools that remain easy to use. Ultimately, these additions and improvements offer increased versatility, and users will benefit from more efficient digital photogrammetric workflows."
