SimActive Inc., a photogrammetry software developer, has announced that Correlator3D now officially supports processing in the cloud. Users can subscribe to an online computing service, such as Amazon EC2, and run Correlator3D on a virtual machine.
“The new option allows our customers to continuously adjust their processing power,” says Louis Simard, corporate technology of SimActive. “Combined with our monthly subscription plan, clients have the cloud’s flexibility, while maintaining full control of their production workflow.”
The main advantage of the new feature is the capability to use multiple licenses as required. It permits an on-demand deployment of the software on various processing machines without any computer hardware.
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.
