IGI Launches a New Version of its AEROoffice & TERRAoffice with Several New Handy Features

Kreuztal, January 20, 2016 — IGI launches the new AEROoffice & TERRAoffice software in version 5.4.50.  This new AEROoffice & TERRAoffice version can do coverage maps for scanning sensors. But there is more. For example, the sensor footprint can be adjusted via the setup page. It is possible to select and define if the sensor has a camera footprint, a scanner footprint or maybe no footprint. The scanner footprint is no longer an extension to a camera, as it was in earlier software versions. It is a distinct parameter of the scanner sensor in the setup.

 

It is possible to operate changing colors for the scanner footprints. Each scanline can have its color in order to well identify scanlines from neighbor scanlines and therefore notice about the overlapping areas or potential holes. Some sensors have a warm-up time or delay from giving the start command until the real start of airborne data collection. Such effects are considered in the new IGI AEROoffice & TERRAoffice software. It is a possibility to do fine-tune adjustments for consideration of the scanners online signal.

The coverage of scanline on the earth surface is shown in Google Earth via KML files created by IGI AEROoffice & TERRAoffice. One more new feature is an indication of the operated and underlying DTM in a message box, which is shown after the Google Earth export. In case of any problems with DTM (e.g. coverage too small), the number of vertices with failed conversions will be indicated.

The new coverage map feature can be created with either raw data or using post-processed data. To utilize raw data leads to the advantage that results can be shown just promptly after landing, without a need to start a time consuming post-processing of data. It can be a great feature to check the overlap of collected data. It also is a good feature to create reports about mission progress for easily showing the accomplished work of day#1, day#2 or when operating several aircraft or for abroad survey missions. After landing, there just can be an email with KML-file to the headquarter. The management at home will easily be updated and learn about the on-site mission progress, day by day.
