September 1, 2001
OrthoBASE Pro enables users to save extracted DTMs as raster digital elevation models (DEMs)and more.

In addition,ERDAS released IMAGINE OrthoBASE Pro, an upgraded add-on module, which automatically extracts DTMs. OrthoBASE Pro enables users to save extracted DTMs as raster digital elevation models (DEMs), triangulated irregular networks (TINs), ESRI 3D Shapefiles or ASCII output files. It automatically extracts, subsets and mosaics individual DTMs for an entire project area; supports the extraction of DTMs from aerial photography, satellite imagery and more; digitizes specific geographic areas to define output DTM extent; and computes detailed accuracy information that is stored in an output DTM.
