LIVERMORE, CA -- The new Topcon PI-3000 Image Modeler Software from Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) allows users to generate 3D models quickly from digital images.

Models can be used for measuring, mapping, ortho images, and interpretation in a wide variety of applications.

Combining an easy-to-use interface and advanced mathematical processing, PI-3000 software allows creation of extremely accurate 3D models with a minimum of preparation, special knowledge or training. Using digital camera images, the PI-3000 software produces photogrammetry models with accuracies up to 0.4 mm.
