SimActive Inc. has launched an automated solution for direct georeferencing from real-time kinematic (RTK) positioning. Within the new workflow feature, users can easily get high accuracy in projects without the use of ground control points (GCP), saving considerable time in collecting and processing data.
“With RTK GPS available on drones, the use of direct georeferencing is growing within the industry,” says Louis Simard, CTO of SimActive. “Correlator3D allows users to maximize their hardware and software investment.”
Martin Instrument, a reseller of SimActive and surveying equipment, is one of the many users benefitting from the automation.
“Direct georeferencing greatly helps reducing cost for applications like corridor mapping,” says Mike Minick, vice president of sales at Martin Instrument. “The new automated option within SimActive software for direct georeferencing greatly facilitates the user workflow.”
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.
