Geodetic Systems, a manufacturer of coordinate measuring systems, has announced new data managerment tools for its V-STARS 4.4 SR2 photogrammetry software. The software is used with the company’s INCA3 digital photogrammetric camera to serve applications in the aerospace and automotive industries. In a typical photogrammetry session, the INCA3 camera is used to capture photographs of large objects for in-place inspection. Users can examine the photographs visually via thumbnails and full images. The new version of the software introduces display enhancements that match the picture thumbnails, their outline colors, and text color to the icons on the project tree. The operator can quickly review color-coded outlines to see the project status of each photograph.
Another new feature is the Create Detail Codes option in the multi-camera mode setup. When this option is checked, any triangulated coded targets not in the driver file are added to the detail file. This information allows users to see how far a code has moved from its starting or baseline condition. For backward compatibility, the option can be deselected.
