Canada’s SimActive is a photogrammetry software that began as a solution for aerial images from satellite and manned aircraft. The inclusion of drone data in the solution means that professional mapping firms can use the best tool for the job – whether they are mapping a city or a construction site.
The new version of Correlator 3D, Correlator3D™ version 8.6, “includes multiple new features, such as the use of intensity data from LAS files for image registration, the ability to improve mosaic seamlines with a DSM and the support of DJI sun sensors,” says the release.
In addition, the new version of Correlator 3D now supports single image satellite projects. “Specifically, aerial triangulation can be performed using GCPs to improve georeferencing. External DEMs can then be used for orthorectification,” says the release.
“Feedback from our users is extremely important to us and drives our software development efforts”, said Louis Simard, CTO at SimActive. “The ability to quickly adjust to client needs as well as to predict their future requirements allows us to stay ahead of competition.”
SimActive is the developer of Correlator3D™ software, a patented end-to-end photogrammetry solution for the generation of high-quality geospatial data from satellite and aerial imagery, including drones. Correlator3D™ performs aerial triangulation (AT) and produces dense digital surface models (DSM), digital terrain models (DTM), point clouds, orthomosaics, 3D models and vectorized 3D features. Powered by GPU technology and multi-core CPUs, Correlator3D™ ensures matchless processing speed to support rapid production of large datasets. SimActive has been selling Correlator3D™ to leading mapping firms and government organizations around the world, offering cutting-edge photogrammetry software backed by exceptional customer support.
