Staged in a collaborative format to display the capabilities of UAVs and software, 7 different data processors from different vendors were required to manage multi-platform datasets, which included 7 projects comprising a total of 5,000 images. The deliverables were assessed on the quality of final products, with processing times also an essential factor.
Using a single standard PC with Correlator3D and a single operator, SimActive was, according to SimActive, the only data processor to complete all datasets. Notably, all deliverables were produced in less than 24 hours. Also according to SimActive, the remaining participants delivered partial or no results in the entire 3-day duration of the conference.
“Correlator3D differentiates the professional surveyor from the hobbyist,” said Louis Simard, CTO of SimActive. “Instead of splurging on RAM and cloud-based setups, it is much better to invest in professional software. Using a standard PC, Correlator3D outperformed competitors, as witnessed by the 750 plus delegates. The ASPRS demo showed that we offer the only viable photogrammetric solution to produce survey-grade results in the most efficient manner.”
SimActive will also be demonstrating at the Asia Geospatial Forum 2014, which will take place on November 25-27 in Jakarta, Indonesia.
