Why My Photogrammetry Software Doesn’t Support Image Attitude

And How Geodetics Geo-Photomap Photogrammetry Software Supports Image Attitude One of the main challenges in surveillance or photogrammetry systems mounted to multi-rotary UAV’s is the effect of vibration from wind, turbulence and pitching of the UAV. To address this...

Do you Need RTK for your Geo-MMS UAV Mapping System?

PPK vs RTK Real-time Kinematic (RTK) and Post-processing Kinematic (PPK) are two related methods for improving GPS positioning accuracy – a technique commonly used in UAV mapping applications.  Both methods make use of differential processing to enhance...

Does Geo-MMS UAV LiDAR Work in Snow Covered Areas?

Photogrammetry vs UAV LiDAR to Capture Snow Covered Areas Approximately, 40-50% of the land surface in the Northern Hemisphere is covered with snow during the winter session.  From a regional scale, an accurate mapping of snow cover plays an important role in...

LiDAR Intensity: What is it and What are it’s applications?

Example Applications of LiDAR Intensity LiDAR intensity is recorded as the return strength of a laser beam. In the Geo-MMS LiDAR systems, it is a bi-product, provided as an integer number between 1-256. This number varies with the composition of the surface object...
