Canada: SimActive, one of the leading developers of photogrammetry software, has announced the release of version 8.0 with a new 3D modelling module for Correlator3D. The module allows the generation of 3D textured meshes to create photorealistic models, which can be exported in standard formats including as OBJ files. Adding a 3D modelling function addresses an increasing need in the industry and is the natural progression of the software workflow, according to Louis Simard, CTO of SimActive. The module implements a new capability to bolster the same software at no additional costs for users, ingrained with the principles of simple, fast and precise.
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 UAVs. Correlator3D performs aerial triangulation (AT) and produces dense digital surface models (DSM), digital terrain models (DTM), point clouds, orthomosaics, 3D models and vectorised 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 organisations around the world, offering cutting-edge photogrammetry software backed by exceptional customer support.
