Photogrammetry software is playing an important role in precision viticulture. Noveltis, a French company, has been using SimActive Correlator3D software to help determine vine health and detect missing plants with the help of multispectral drone imagery and mapping products.
“SimActive automates our production process for extracting DSMs, DTMs and orthomosaics,” says Florian Jeliazovski, project manager at Noveltis. “We greatly improved the detection of vine rows, and have been able to provide quantitative and qualitative information to our customers.”
Correlator3 and drone technology allow for efficient monitoring of high-value crops, says Philippe Simard, president of SimActive. “We are proud to support Noveltis in its innovative application of our software.”
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.
