PCI Geomatics Partners with IAVO to Distribute 3D Feature Extraction Software

3DFE provides users the ability to model 3D features in a 2D environment, by calculating feature heights and outlines through the use of overlapping satellite or aerial imagery. The software has been developed by leading scientists at IAVO (International Association of Virtual Organizations), a research and development company based in Durham, North Carolina.

“3DFE provides users the ability to extract highly accurate textured buildings and other features from stereo imagery, with minimum training”, said Peter Hazlett, Desktop Product Manager at PCI Geomatics. “We are pleased to be working with IAVO, and to provide this 3D mapping technology to the global marketplace.”

“We believe 3DFE offers capabilities aligned tightly with emerging trends in 3D geospatial and feature modeling, and we anticipate the software being enthusiastically embraced by PCI’s various user communities”, added Dr. Matthew Heric, Chief Executive Officer at IAVO.

PCI Geomatics continues to provide leading edge tools to correct satellite and aerial imagery, having recently released its GXL 2013 software, which includes innovative 2.5D hybrid DSM to DTM editing tools.  With 3DFE software, customers will also be able to perform true ortho processing, delineate building footprints, and make building models.

“Building models are expensive to generate or purchase from traditional sources”, said David Piekny, Solutions Product Manager at PCI Geomatics. “Using 3DFE, our customers can easily produce building footprints, extrude 3D buildings, and also derive building texture information, all through the use of their existing stereo data collections. The software provides highly accurate results, is intuitive and simple to use, and will provide increased production speeds for true ortho projects”.

PCI Geomatics will act as the global distributor for the software, with additional distribution to be implemented through its international reseller network. For sales related inquiries or any additional information regarding 3DFE, please contact us at:  info@pcigeomatics.com
