SimActive Inc. has announced the latest version of Correlator3D, including a completely redesigned aerial triangulation (AT) module. The tie point extraction and bundle algorithms have been further enhanced, along with the added capability to address problematic input data (e.g. low overlap projects).
“Our significant R&D efforts on the AT are due to its substantial impact on all subsequent results,” saysLouis Simard, CTO of SimActive. “As such, the release vastly improves and simplifies the entire production chain.”
The release features an alignment tool, which automatically registers new projects to older mosaics and DEMs. It removes the need for recollecting ground control points (GCPs). In addition, a new semi-automatic workflow was developed for GCP tagging.
A live demonstration will be featured at booth 360 at AUVSI's XPONENTIAL 2016, May 2-5 in New Orleans.
SimActive is the developer of Correlator3D software, a patented end-to-end photogrammetry solution for the generation of high-quality geospatial data from satellite and aerial imagery, including UAVs. Correlator3D performs aerial triangulation (AT) and produces dense digital surface models (DSM), digital terrain models (DTM), point clouds, orthomosaics and vectorized 3D features. SimActive sells Correlator3D to mapping firms and government organizations around the world.
