HANNOVER, Germany -Trimble introduced a new version of its Inpho software products for aerial photogrammetry and laser scanning data production. Inpho 5.5 includes Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) data processing and LPMaster, a new software product specifically designed for the production of Trimble Harrier aerial LiDAR and imaging data.

Inpho 5.5 introduces techniques specifically designed to manage UAS image characteristics, tackling challenges with camera calibration and image quality. It also features the ability to automatically create an Inpho project from Trimble Gatewing data. As a result, UAS users, particularly Trimble Gatewing customers, will gain access to the high-quality photogrammetric processing that Inpho has offered within aerial survey.

LPMaster is a new Inpho software product supporting laser data production for the Trimble Harrier aerial LiDAR and imaging system. The stepwise software approach simplifies project setup and data handling, from raw laser data to a controlled referenced point cloud or gridded data, for users with any experience level.

"This release brings Inpho's high-quality approach to aerial photogrammetry into new markets and application scenarios," said Katherine Sandford, general manager of Trimble's GeoSpatial Division. "As UAS and aerial LiDAR usage continues to grow, Inpho is well positioned to continue its leadership in aerial photogrammetry."

For existing Inpho users, version 5.5 also provides improvements focused on performance, quality of results and usability. In the new version, users can benefit from shorter computation times and higher throughput which are achieved by extending the number of supported cores from four to eight. Even large projects are now smoothly displayed, leveraging in-memory patch-ortho-mosaics for premium performance. An improved dense-matching technique eliminates terrace effects and improves handling of low texture and shadow areas, resulting in increased point cloud quality. New tools and functions for camera calibration, orthophoto display, vector editing and point cloud colorization simplify and enhance Inpho workflows.
