ERDAS IMAGINE Photogrammetry

“A Complete Suite of Photogrammetric Production Tools”.

A fully functional photogrammetry system packaged ina user-friendly environment, IMAGINE Photogrammetryprovides results for everyone, from photogrammetry novices through advanced users. IMAGINE Photogrammetry does not cut corners on either features or accuracy. State-of-the-art photogrammetry technology, such as full analytical triangulation, digital terrain model generation, orthophoto production, mosaicking, and 3D feature extraction, has been included in the easy-to-use environment. By automatingprecision measurement and including flexible operations such as terrain editing and feature extraction, IMAGINE Photogrammetry increases productivity while ensuring high accuracy. IMAGINE Photogrammetry is the most flexible photogrammetry solution on the market, handling a variety of workflows including:

• Triangulation and orthomosaic production

• Broad area mapping

• Transportation planning

• Engineering and facilities mapping

• Defense applications

• Close-range applications

Tight integration with ERDAS IMAGINE® means that this is the ideal photogrammetric package for projects involving varied types of data and further processing and analysis of airborne and satellite imagery. The added power of IMAGINEAdvantage® is included with every IMAGINE Photogrammetry license, enabling you to go beyond the standard photogrammetric outputs and deliver value-added products to your customers.

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.
