Cloud processing with human quality control

August 5th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

SimActive Inc. has announced a new drone data processing service based on Correlator3D.  Clients can now upload full projects and have SimActive experts generate optimal results from their imagery, including DSMs, DTMs, 3D models and orthomosaics. As opposed to common cloud-based solutions where outputs are generated automatically and delivered as-is, the new offering includes quality control by photogrammetry specialists. Manual tagging of ground control points is also performed as part of the service. This services allows clients with no experience in photogrammetry access to a high-end processing software. An added benefit is the company’s simple pricing scheme, which guarantees fixed and predictable project costs. Correlator3D is a patented end-to-end photogrammetry solution which can be used with various sensors, including UAV platorms, infrared and multispectral sensors, aircraft sensors such as DMC, Ultracam and Phase One, as well as satellite sensors. The software offers fast processing on GPUs and multi-core CPUs, for products including DEM contour extraction, point cloud colourisation, GCP extraction, volume calculation, NDVI map creation and DEM inspection.
