High-Volume Commercial Photogrammetry and Production Mapping Capabilities Come to Life
November 28th, 2012 by Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon Geospatial
Photogrammetry is a vital component of the geospatial information lifecycle. After data capture, photogrammetric software provides enhanced production mapping, as well the ability to move large quantities of raw data to exploitable formats, for improved decision-making.
As experts in photogrammetry, Intergraph provides software for production, project and do-it-yourself photogrammetry software. In Intergraph Geospatial Portfolio 2013, we provide major improvements to users engaged in high-volume photogrammetry and production mapping. The ImageStation software suite enables digital photogrammetry workflows, including project creation, orientation and triangulation, 3D feature collection and editing, digital terrain model (DTM) collection and editing, and orthophoto production using aerial and satellite imagery.
ImageStation 2013 includes:
This release also includes new capabilities for dense terrain extraction from digital aerial frame imagery, new opportunities for distributable processing, and increased support for ingesting surfaces.
ImageStation 2013 will also include a new add-on module: ImageStation Automatic Elevations – Extended (ISAE-Ext), which will enable users to generate dense point clouds using pixel-level correlation on stereo imagery from Leica RCD30, Z\I DMC (I&II) and UltraCam sensors to produce 3D orthos. This innovative approach uses semi-global matching (SGM) to extract and build dense point clouds.
As we are coming up on the official launch of the Intergraph Geospatial Portfolio 2013, we will continue to provide updates regarding new product features and benefits.
