The Most Comprehensive Photogrammetric Production Software on the Market
The ImageStation software suite enables digital photogrammetry workflows, including project creation, orientation and triangulation, 3D feature collection and editing, digital terrain model (DTM) collection and editing, and orthophoto production using aerial and satellite imagery. ImageStation is specially designed for high-volume commercial photogrammetry and production mapping customers who need to move large quantities of raw spatial information to an actionable or exploitable format.
ImageStation within the GeoMedia context helps mapping professionals create continuous, topologically accurate, and attributed map layers stored in a variety of open formats. This integration enables you to streamline the process of creating and/or updating your GIS using photogrammetric techniques and directly store your data as an asset within a corporate data base.
Ortho Cloud Processing
ImageStation accelerates photogrammetric processing through its use of “ortho clouds” consisting of computing resources connected by high-speed network infrastructure and high-performance storage systems. Intergraph’s ortho cloud uses a private cloud paradigm that can be deployed within any organization, including mapping agencies or cloud service providers.
ImageStation can generate dense point clouds from stereo imagery using the industry-accepted semi-global matching technique. Semi-global matching avoids correlation problems caused by recording or illumination differences or reflections, and facilitates matching at the boundaries of objects or fine structures. You can use these dense point clouds to create precise surface models for highly accurate orthorectification, or as a source for manual or semi-automatic feature collection.
