GCP-Free Drone Photogrammetry System

Geo-Photomap is a new technology and capability offered by Geodetics’ Geo-MMS LiDAR Mobile Mapping System. Geo-Photomap tightly integrates GPS/IMU with RGB imagery/multispectral resulting in direct-georeferencing of the captured images, allowing the capability of corridor mapping and vertical mapping:

  • Image Time-tagging
  • Image Geo-tagging
  • Ground Control Point Free
  • Allows vertical mapping
  • Allows corridor mapping (low sidelap)
  • Camera rotation capability
  • Facilitates Photogrammetry Process
  • Reduce flight duration (less overlaps)
  • Supported by Agisoft, Pix4D, etc
  • Rasterization
  • Orthophoto generation
  • Ready to use along Geodetics’ LiDAR module (Point& Pixel)
