Leica Geosystems GIS & Mapping LLC announced the Leica Photogrammetry Suite, a seamlessly integrated suite of digital photogrammetry products that empowers users to transform raw imagery into reliable data layers required for all digital mapping, GIS analysis and 3D visualization.
“The Leica Photogrammetry Suite takes our existing photogrammetry products to a new level while taking into consideration the evolving needs of the market,” said Martin Tremp, Vice President, Business Development & Product Management, Leica Geosystems, GIS & Mapping. “We listened to our customers who said they needed a product that fit into or enhanced their existing workflow, increased their productivity, and was affordable. We’ve responded with a process-driven suite of products that is based on our expertise gained with the creation and support for the ERDAS IMAGINE line and long involvement with SOCET Set sales and support.”
The first version of the Leica Photogrammetry Suite will be available in Fall 2003; and the second version is scheduled for release by Spring 2004. The first sneak preview of the Suite will be May 7-9 at ASPRS in Anchorage, Alaska, USA (booth #300), with subsequent demonstrations at the ESRI International User Conference in San Diego in June and at Leica Geosystems’ User Group Meeting in Denver in August.
Created by some of the best engineers in the industry - the same engineers who helped create and develop such industry-leading products as SOCET SET and ERDAS IMAGINE- the Leica Photogrammetry Suite is made up of Leica Geosystems’ photogrammetry components.
