East View Geospatial (EVG), a provider of content-rich geospatial products, is now offering high-quality image cleaning and pre-processing services for visual databases (VDBs).

EVG has a long history of working with high-resolution imagery to produce detailed elevation models for use in simulation software. The company adds, EVG’s in-house team of geospatial analysts are experienced in extracting and attributing features from imagery and other geospatial source data to ensure accurate datasets, from 3D city models to transportation networks and hydrographic systems.

The company’s latest solution, image cleaning and pre-processing services, uses a proprietary workflow. EVG works with high-resolution imagery (better than 50 cm) to suppress any distortions and remove any unwanted noise. Often this includes the removal of vehicles, shadows, people, etc., the company noted. At the same time, features such as roads, parking lots, and crosswalks are extracted, digitized and rasterized on top of the source imagery to produce an image output optimized for use in 3D visualization software.

EVG’s image cleaning and pre-processing services are highlighted in a recent collaboration with long-time partner B-Design 3D Ltd., an independent provider of interactive 3D visual content for the training and simulation industry. Information at East View Geospatial.
