IMAGINE AUTO DTM:
The IMAGINE Auto DTM add-on module has capabilities for fast, accurate automatic terrain extraction from multiple images using sophisticated techniques with built-inaccuracy reporting. This can operate in three modes: Sparse Matching, Dense Matching, and Semi-Global Matching.Increase throughput efficiency by running in multi coreprocessing mode on a single computer system using ERDASIMAGINE’s batch tool or with distributed processing acrossa network of computer systems using Condor.
Sparse matching,the fastest of the terrain extractionmodes, allows you to automatically extract terrain from projects made up of aerial frame, Leica ADS, digital, videoand non-metric cameras, as well as satellite sensors with stereo capability (SPOT, IKONOS, QuickBird, WorldView,GeoEye, etc.). Customizable DTM extraction strategyparameters allow you to match the strategy to the terrainyou are creating, maximizing the accuracy of your DTM.Embedded quality assurance, quality control, and accuracyreporting tools enable you to quickly and easily assessthe DTM for fine tuning of the parameters or pinpointlocations for terrain editing later. Create a wide variety ofDTM formats, including ERDAS raster formats, LTF TINs, 3Dshapefiles, TerraModel TINs, or ASCII files.
