(Heerbrugg, 22 September 2010) -
Leica XPro’s new version 4.4 now supports RGB and multispectral 4-band orthophoto generation including near infrared (NIR) from data acquired with the Leica ADS Airborne Digital Sensor HiRes mode, thus offering the most efficient swath width of up to 24000 pixels. Leica XPro, Leica Geosystems’ leading line sensor workflow that provides advanced ground processing from data download to image generation, has further been updated with several new features.
Support of 4-band HiRes ortho images
Users seeking to improve their cost base can reduce flight lines and data acquisition costs significantly by acquiring data with the Leica ADS HiRes mode that supports a swath width of up to 24000 pixels. In addition to RGB products, Leica XPro’s HiRes rectification supports now also 4-band orthos including the near-infrared (NIR).
L0 data export from Leica XPro 4.4 to third party workflow solutions
With a brand new L0 data delivery and export option, users can now easily transfer Leica ADS high quality image data to their preferred photogrammetric workflow solution and easily perform aerial triangulation and product generation in an environment familiar to them.
Save time with a new concept for radiometric profiles
While re-viewing and analysing images on the fly, the Radiometric Profiles concept allows the user to select the most preferred image adjustment settings. The radiometric properties of the required deliverables can be determined in advance without the need to start the final product generation process.
Further enhancements in Leica XPro 4.4 include
- New option in Data Preparation for creating L2 Quickviews
- Optional viewing of cross-eyed stereo in QC Viewer
- New option of starting APM from Aerial Triangulation interface
- Additional option for datum estimation per Session in the Triangulation module
- New option for exporting adjusted points from Triangulation module
