“In concert with the ‘sustainable future’ theme for ISPRS 2012, we are excited to highlight innovations and technical presentations that are ideal for monitoring our planet,” said Mladen Stojic, Vice President – Geospatial, Intergraph. “Our world is changing at a faster pace than we could have ever imagined, and we need the right geospatial solutions to enable governments, policy makers and other organizations to make smarter decisions that will positively impact our future.”
Intergraph has helped customers around the world use geospatial software to solve global challenges, from dam monitoring in China to sustainable farming in Australia.
Highlighted below are several of the technical sessions that will showcase Intergraph’s photogrammetry and remote sensing solutions.
Identifying Building Change Using High-Resolution Point Clouds: An Object-Based Approach
Wednesday, August 29, 2:00 p.m. | Room 211
Discover how you can apply object-based change detection techniques to high-resolution point clouds, enabling you to view change over time in above-ground features such as buildings and trees.
A Multi-Sensor Approach to Semi-Global Matching
Wednesday, August 29, at 2:00 p.m. | Room 219
Learn the Semi-Global Matching (SGM) technique for Leica ADS line-scanner data, which has created a growing community that applies this surface extraction to aerial frame imagery. You can achieve this by combining high-resolution geometry and multi-spectral information, ultimately resulting in point clouds.
Object-Oriented Change Detection with Discriminant Function
Thursday, August 30, at 2:00 p.m. | Room 211
See firsthand an object-oriented approach to change detection based on a novel discriminant-function algorithm. This approach enables you to easily differentiate whether change was caused by the addition or removal of objects, and minimize the detection of inconsequential changes caused by shadows, vertical layover and simple color differences.
Empirical Distribution Analysis-based Object Cue Metric
Friday, August 31, at 11:00 a.m. | Room 211
Until now, object-based classification of high spatial-resolution imagery has mostly relied on spatial characteristics (such as shape, size and texture) of the objects as cues. Typically, summary measurements such as mean and standard deviation of the pixel values within each object are used to depict the spectral characteristics of the object. Learn about the development and use of a novel object cue based on performing empirical distribution analysis (EDA) for each object.
In addition, Intergraph will provide live product demonstrations in booth #38. To learn more, please visit http://www.intergraph.com/geospatial.
Intergraph is the leading global provider of engineering and geospatial software that enables customers to visualize complex data. Businesses and governments in more than 60 countries rely on Intergraph’s industry-specific software to organize vast amounts of data to make processes and infrastructure better, safer and smarter. The company’s software and services empower customers to build and operate more efficient plants and ships, create intelligent maps, and protect critical infrastructure and millions of people around the world.
Intergraph operates through two divisions: Process, Power & Marine (PP&M) and Security, Government & Infrastructure (SG&I). Intergraph PP&M provides enterprise engineering software for the design, construction, operation and data management of plants, ships and offshore facilities. Intergraph SG&I provides geospatially powered solutions including ERDAS technologies to the public safety and security, defense and intelligence, government, transportation, photogrammetry, and utilities and communications industries. Intergraph Government Solutions (IGS) is an independent subsidiary for SG&I’s U.S. federal business.
