Topcon Image Master modeler software captures ‘reality’ in the field

LIVERMORE, CA -- The new Topcon Image Master 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, Image Master software allows creation of extremely accurate 3D models with a minimum of preparation or special knowledge or training.
 
Using digital camera images, the Image Master software produces photogrammetry models with accuracies up to 0.4 mm. The software produces three-dimensional coordinate points and surfaces by measurements made in two or more digital photographic images taken from different positions.
 
Topcon’s Image Master can be used for a wide variety of applications, including:

-- Close-range photogrammetric applications

The advanced features of the software include:

-- Calculation and display of model cross sections;
-- Calculation and display of contour lines;
-- Area and volume calculations;
