“With this year’s release, we have focused on key areas that will improve the overall workflow and quality of output imagery,” said David Piekny, Product Manager at PCI Geomatics. “GXL 2013 provides new tools that allow users to generate Digital Surface Models from large data sets of hundreds to thousands of stereo pairs, and apply new, innovative 2.5D hybrid editing techniques – users can make changes to their elevation models and inspect the resulting quality of orthos at full resolution, in real time. This approach will greatly reduce the manual adjustments and editing, which are typically required in post-production steps, since errors can be spotted instantly and addressed.”
Other key development areas include a redesigned true-ortho capability, as well as improved automated cutline generation methods that model the presence of features in overlapping imagery (such as buildings, trees, vehicles, etc.) to avoid them, resulting in cleaner, nicer-looking ortho-mosaics.
“We believe ortho-mosaicked products generated by GXL 2013 will significantly reduce overall production timelines and provide substantial cost savings over more traditional methods,” said Brad Schmidt, VP, Sales and Marketing at PCI Geomatics. “GXL 2013 continues our legacy of providing cutting-edge geoimaging technology for both the satellite and aerial image processing markets.”
