Leica RCD30: Better Resolution with More Details for 3D City Modeling

(Norcross,GA, 6 October, 2014) – Leica Geosystems’ RCD30 Penta Oblique system is now available with new optics. Compared to the previous configuration, which consists of lenses with 50 mm focal length for nadir and 80 mm for oblique images, the camera isnow available with 80 mm and 150 mm focal length respectively.  In combination with the new 80 MP CCD sensor, the RCD30 nowprovides data with even more detail. These new features make the RCD30 the only oblique system able to acquire 4-channel RGBNmultispectral data with 10 centimeter Ground Sampling Distance (GSD) from an altitude of 3,000 meters. No other camera on the market today offers these performance parameters. Compared to other systems, users can fly higher and achieve the same high resolution. […]
