Gatewing Launches Stretchout Software for Photogrammetry

September 28, 2011

Gatewing's Stretchout desktop software incorporates advanced vision technology that changes the way photogrammetric images are processed. Designed to operate with the X100 UAV, the fully automatic software delivers georeferenced orthophotos and digital surface models (DSMs) at high accuracy. It allows for the creation of very dense point clouds in a georeferenced format (GeoTIFF, XYZ or TIN model) that can be imported into any GIS or CAD package. Orthophoto mosaics are created by seamlessly projecting the texture of raw images onto the DSM through the use of intelligent color balancing. Every processing session outputs optimized camera calibration data as well as image orientation and position data, allowing compatibility with standard photogrammetry suites.
