Japan: Airbus Defence and Space has signed a contract with PASCO Corporation, Japan, for the installation of the Street Factory 3D urban mapping solution at one of its production facilities in Japan. With the acquisition, PASCO has become the only company to own the complete range of geo-processing solutions proposed by Airbus Defence and Space, allowing it to cover the entire range of geo-information data production (including DEMs, ortho images and urban3D models) derived from satellite and aerial data.
Launched in July 2012, Street Factory is a fully integrated solution enabling rapid and fully automatic processing of images from any aerial or street camera for the generation of a 3D textured database. These realistic and precise 3D data are used in 3D modelling and visualization in fields including urban planning, risk management, defence and telecommunications.
