(Heerbrugg, 4 April 2011) -
Leica Geosystems announces version 10.2 of its powerful Leica Flight Planning & Evaluation Software (FPES). Many existing features have been enhanced and new productive features have been added to make Leica FPES v10.2 the most productive tool for cost-effective flights.
Leica FPES v10.2 offers the most advanced functionality and highest efficiency in flight planning for all Leica Geosystems airborne sensors to ensure seamless workflow, but also supports other airborne frame, line or on/off sensors. With an easy to learn, easy to use and highly customizable graphical interface, Leica FPES is the first step in powering geospatial imaging.
Version 10.2 of Leica FPES provides enhanced planning features like graphical definition of the line direction or cutting groups of lines. The height range for elevation encoded color images can now be defined and Leica FPES v10.2 can also detect the minimum and maximum elevation in a DTM area, an AOI or in flight line footprints. New computation options allow to take the terrain height outside the AOI into account and coordinate systems of existing flight plans can be changed to merge flight plans together. Also many new QC features are implemented and the Flight Line Investigator is enhanced. Leica FPES v 10.2 frame flight plans can be exported now in the format for execution with Z/I Inflight.
Additionally Leica FPES v10.2 has incorporated a significantly enhanced AeroPlan for flight planning with Leica ALS sensors. The new AeroPlan70 provides graphical presentation of the computation results, includes one additional point density optimization method and the possibility to compute for multi-sensor configurations frame camera parameters that match the ALS settings. Furthermore, AeroPlan70 supports the recently announced Leica ALS70 airborne laser scanner.
Leica FPES v10.2 is available immediately and ready for download for Customers of Leica FPES which are on Software Maintenance.
