SimActive Implements Enhanced Workflow for Phase One 280MP Aerial System

SimActive Releases Updated Correlator3D™ for Seamless Integration with Phase One’s High-Resolution Aerial Imaging

Montreal, Canada, June 11th, 2024 – SimActive Inc., a prominent developer of photogrammetry software, has announced a new version of its Correlator3D™ software. This update introduces enhanced support for the Phase One 280MP Aerial System, streamlining the process for users.

The latest version of Correlator3D™ allows for the seamless importation of data from the dual lens of the Phase One 280MP system, merging their respective fields-of-view efficiently. Importantly, the software processes imagery directly in Phase One’s native IIQ format, avoiding the need for intermediate file conversions. This direct handling of compressed files significantly simplifies data management, especially for extensive projects.

Louis Simard, Chief Technology Officer at SimActive, highlighted the significance of this development: “Just as we were the first to implement the processing of Phase One’s IIQ format, we are now the first to provide a complete workflow for the 280MP systems. Many of our aerial clients are moving towards larger format sensors such as those from Phase One, and Correlator3D can handle them all.”

SimActive is renowned for its Correlator3D™ software, a comprehensive photogrammetry solution designed to generate high-quality geospatial data from satellite and aerial imagery, including data from drones. Correlator3D™ excels in performing aerial triangulation (AT) and producing detailed digital surface models (DSM), digital terrain models (DTM), point clouds, orthomosaics, 3D models, and vectorized 3D features. Leveraging GPU technology and multi-core CPUs, Correlator3D™ ensures rapid processing speeds, supporting the swift production of large datasets. SimActive serves leading mapping firms and government organizations worldwide, offering advanced photogrammetry software supported by exceptional customer service.
