Aerodata's photogrammetry and ortho services,
with or without an aerial survey prior to it, have become high value
services in today's market as they can be delivered faster and more
economically, without quality suffering.
This is possible because of Aerodata's commitment to continuous
improvement, innovation and investment in people, Aerodata offers
the various services both as standalone as well as part of a full
Aerial triangulation (AT) and block adjustment is the photogrammetric process in which all individual images of a project area are linked together and geo-referenced to the local coordinate system. Aerodata uses the latest versions of specialized software packages such as Match-AT, SocetSet and BINGO.
DSM / DTM generation
By automatic correlation of digital (or digitized) images a Digital Surface Model (DSM) can be calculated. This product describes the height of the earth’s surface, the terrain itself and everything that is on it. By means of filtering and interactive editing of the database the Digital Terrain Model (DTM) can be derived. This is a model of the ground surface.
Elevation models (DSM or DTM) are used in orthophoto production or directly in GIS-applications.
Aerodata uses the latest versions of specialised DTM generation and editing software from INPHO, Match-T and DTMaster.
digital orthophoto production
Orthophoto mosaics are widely used as a reference or background for production of new topographic or thematic
maps and GIS-analysis. They are also used for verification
and updating of existing spatial data, for spatial planning
and land use management.
Aerodata Surveys has deepened and widened their digital orthophoto production capabilities to ensure the best fit-
for-purpose, whether the requirement is high-end mapping
with emphasis on geometric quality or (very) large aerial photo projects with emphasis on time and throughput.
The goal for any customer is to get their aerial photo product
as fast as possible at an optimal quality-price-speed ratio.
The implementation of the Aerodata Pixel Pipeline forms
the foundation on which it all happens. It is a massive digital pipeline with loads of storage (400TB or almost half a petabyte),
computing power (a large array of processing nodes) and bandwidth/throughput combined in a large advanced cluster system.
The Aerodata Pixel Pipeline is combined with an integrated
and modular set of production software packages tailored to meet the low volume, high quality demands as well as sheer
volume through distributed processing.
Aerodata uses the latest versions of specialized orthophoto production and mosaicking software from INPHO and PCI Geomatics.
