Canada: SimActive Inc., a world-leading developer of photogrammetry software, announces that Correlator3D is being used in Japan for mapping projects acquired by the DJI Phantom 4 RTK. A full-scale validation was done in the mountains near Hiroshima with a unit flown by SimActive Japanese partner Mirukuru and customer Ace-1.
“Considering that the data were acquired and processed directly in the field in a record time, the level of details that are visible and measurable in Correlator3D™ is stunning”, said Shinji Inaba, Technical Manager at Mirukuru Co. Ltd., Japan. “We had independently set up five check points and the residuals are consistently in the 5cm-range, both horizontal and vertical.”
“The area was surveyed by two independent flights at different altitude to assess consistency using Correlator3D’s change detection module”, said Francois Gervaix, Technical Advisor at SimActive. “The analysis was very simple to achieve, and 3D profiles showed no bias and very limited noise.”
