Visual Learning Systems (VLS) has announced that CAE Inc., a provider of simulation and modeling technologies, has chosen Feature Analyst to assist in the creation of its flight simulation systems for civil aviation and defense customers. Visual Learning Systems, Inc. works in automated feature extraction solutions for the GIS industry. “The introduction of satellite images and aerial photography mapped on terrain has posed another level of complexity to the development of visual databases,” states Art Malvar, CAE’s Group Leader, Advanced Database Development. Feature Analyst addresses this issue by automatically extracting features of interest from these datasets quickly and accurately. Feature Analyst can help companies avoid tedious and costly manual work. The software eliminates most of the manual processes required and increases the scene content of the databases created.
