May 16, 2011 -- RICHMOND HILL, ON - Navmatica announced today the launch of new services for geometric calibration and validation of airborne mapping cameras. Services include In-situ camera calibration for analog and digital mapping cameras and independent accuracy validation of map products produced by airborne cameras.
With the recent announcement by the USGS at the ASPRS 2011 Conference in Milwaukee that they no longer intend to provide camera calibration or digital aerial type certifications past the end of 2012, anyone wishing to continue using their analog film camera will require it to be calibrated In-situ using a well-controlled photogrammetric process. Navmatica offers this service for customers so that they do not have to invest in developing an in-house process, and to ensure they obtain consistent, reliable results. Additionally Navmatica offers independent validation services on final map product accuracy that can be used to help “self-certify” a new digital sensor type.
“Navmatica has a long history in providing consulting services for photogrammetric mapping”, said Dr. Mohamed Mostafa, Chief Technical Officer for Navmatica Corporation. “By tapping into this vast experience we are able to offer geometric calibration and validation services to the aerial mapping industry that are of the absolute highest quality standard. Navmatica provides our customers with the confidence they need to deliver geometrically accurate data each and every project”
In-situ airborne camera calibration services include:
- Test range design and GCP layout
- Flight plan design and data collection specifications
- Data processing and generation of calibration report
Navmatica provides independent accuracy evaluation of map products produced using airborne mapping cameras. This service is useful for:
- Establishing the accuracy of a new type of mapping camera for marketing purposes
- Providing an independent audit of your map production workflow
- Proving evidence of quality for bidding on tenders or for acceptance of deliverables
