SimActive Software Used by CMM to Complete Large Photogrammetry Project

October 04, 2012 -- SimActive Inc., a world-leading developer of photogrammetry software, is pleased to announce that the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal (CMM) has completed a key project using multiple Correlator3D™ licenses. CMM is a planning, coordinating and funding body serving the entire region of Montreal and the surrounding areas with jurisdiction in land planning, infrastructure and road networks.

The project involved the processing of 6,254 large format aerial images at a ground sampling distance of 24cm into digital surface models, digital terrain models and orthomosaics. SimActive’s software was leveraged to generate a smooth, seamless and accurate final mosaic. The data are now used extensively throughout 82 municipalities, 5 provincial ministries, 3 universities, Hydro-Quebec, the Metropolitan Transportation Agency, emergency services, various governmental / environmental agencies and engineering firms.

“We sought photogrammetry software with the objective to reduce costs and improve delivery times to our clients,” said Alain Hotte, Project Manager at CMM. “Correlator3D™ has performed exceptionally well both in terms of data quality and processing speeds”.

“We are pleased CMM chose our software to perform such an important project”, said Dr. Philippe Simard, President of SimActive. “Correlator3D™ demonstrated yet again its ability to handle large projects efficiently and with optimal performance”.
