Montreal, Canada, December 8th, 2020 – SimActive Inc., a world-leading developer of photogrammetry software, announces the integration of its Correlator3D™ product into LiDAR systems for drones developed by LiDAR USA.
Possible configurations include two side-by-side cameras that allow matching the footprint of the LiDAR sensor, a particularly useful setup for corridor mapping.
SimActive’s Correlator3D™ software is used for automatically registering the imagery with the LiDAR data. Once a perfect alignment has been achieved, the point clouds are colorized using the photos.
“The ability to directly use LiDAR as control for adjusting image positions really is a unique feature”, said Jeff Fagerman, CEO at LiDAR USA. “Correlator3D allows our clients to quickly combine LiDAR with data from multi-camera systems and produce high-quality outputs.”
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.
