The Department of Agriculture Acquires SimActive Software for Watershed Analysis
June 15, 2009
SimActive Inc., is pleased to announce the acquisition of its Correlator3D™ product by the Department of Agriculture. SimActive’s software will be primarily used for watershed analysis from imagery.
“Correlator3D™ is providing the Department of Agriculture an inexpensive solution for generating terrain profiles” said Dr Philippe Simard, President and Co-Founder of SimActive. “Our customer will take advantage of its existing database of aerial images, providing a much larger return on investment. The ability to quickly and easily generate digital surface models (DSM) will allow the Department of Agriculture to significantly reduce costs of watershed analysis compared to traditional survey methods or LiDAR data.”
