SimActive Inc., a developer of photogrammetry software, announced the release of version 8.0 with a new 3D modeling module for Correlator3D. The module allows the generation of 3D textured meshes to create photorealistic models, which can be exported in standard formats, including OBJ files.

“Adding a 3D modeling function addresses an increasing need in the industry and the natural progression of our software workflow,” says Louis Simard, CTO of SimActive. “The module implements a new capability to bolster the same software at no additional cost for our users, ingrained with core SimActive principles: simple, fast and precise.”

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, 3D models and vectorized 3D features. Powered by GPU technology and multi-core CPUs, Correlator3D ensures matchless processing speed to support rapid production of large datasets. For more information, visit www.simactive.com.
