Pixxures to use SimActive’s Software for DTM Extraction
December 08, 2009
SimActive Inc., is pleased to announce that Pixxures has acquired its Correlator3D™ software. Pixxures, a major US firm, will primarily be using the product for generating digital terrain models (DTM).
“Correlator3D™ now allows us to automatically filter digital surface models (DSM) and extract DTM”, said Mark Stanton, Operations Manager at Pixxures. “To this date, we have been forced to perform this process manually as no other technology could fulfill our requirements. SimActive’s software will allow us to significantly reduce our production costs.”
Dr Philippe Simard, President and Co-Founder of SimActive, stated, “This sale confirms the current market trend for optimizing photogrammetric workflows. Such a highly respected customer in the industry strengthens our position as the new generation of geospatial software products.”
To this date, we have been forced to perform this process manually as no other technology could fulfill our requirements. SimActive’s software will allow us to significantly reduce our production costs.
Designed for speed and ease of use, Correlator3D™ consists of fully automated software tools for the production of digital surface models (DSM) and digital terrain models (DTM), the creation of orthophotos and mosaics, and the detection of 3D changes. Correlator3D™ is significantly simpler and faster than currently available tools. Highly trained personnel are no longer mandatory.
