Belgium: Orbit GeoSpatial Technologies has announced the availability of a completely re-engineered UAS mapping software solution.
The UAS Mapping software provides the tools required for automated flight planning and high precision mapping post-processing. The software enables to create an automated flight plan by defining the area coverage in a minimum number of steps. It calculates the required waypoints and writes down a full mono or stereo image coverage of the project ready for UAS import. An automated post-processing of the UAS flight data is done by calling the post-flight part of Orbit UAS mapping software. First, the UAS data importer feeds the mapping project with the necessary basic data coming from the planning and flight data. Then an automated triangulation based on several point detection and matching techniques with automated blunder detection successfully completes the bundle block adjustment. The DSM, stereo project, and orthophoto are finally made on different scales and allow the professional user to map in the user-friendly 2D or 3D-stereo Orbit GIS environment.
