  • 1. IPS Overview
  • 2. About Us Established 2004, Metro Washington DC Developed advanced remote sensing software, solutions, and services Dedicated R&D and production facilities Esri Silver Partner Global reach through unique collection techniques
  • 3. Why Photogrammetry? High-quality Output data Wide range of uses for Output data Basic aerial mapping Change/anomaly detection Multispectral imagery 3D modeling/simulations Science and art combined Visually beautiful end product Geographically/mathematically sound
  • 4. What is an Orthomosaic? Ortho-rectification + Mosaicing = Orthomosaic Ortho-rectification corrects imagery for distortions using elevation data and camera calibration information Mosiacing is the process of stitching multiple images together into one single image Why is it important? Gives big-picture, geospatially accurate views of large areas of interest How it’s made? The Photogrammetric Process
  • 5. The Process What is Photogrammetry? Determines the geometric properties of photograph(s) Should be geographically accurate Does not necessarily mean geographically accurate Geography matters Raw Images & GPS Matching & Correlation Terrain Extraction (Elevations) Stitching Seamline Generation Mosaic
  • 6. Workflow Raw Images & GPS Photogrammetric Software Mosaic Geo-referenced Smooth Seamlines Color-balanced Uniform Brightness
  • 7. Challenges Automatic Image Matching Large Bundle Blocks of Images Accurate Image Mosaicing Visible Seam-lines Between Images in a Mosaic Sensor Calibration Workflow Automation Poor Quality Inputs = Poor Quality Outputs
  • 8. Our Solution Aerial photogrammetric processing software Based on remote sensing and collection expertise Compatible with any frame-based sensor (Platform agnostic) Creates high-resolution products Digital Terrain/Digital Surface Maps Orthophotos 3D models from raw image data Oblique/Thermal processing Training, support and installation services
  • 9. IPS Advantages Accuracy Quality control tools Camera calibration Stitches homogeneous areas Efficiency Automated, modular workflow Scalability Large number of images Standards-based
  • 10. IPS Workflow Flight Ground Process Final Product Actionable Product Capture Raw Image Captured Post-Flight Product Geo-Referenced Images Operational Product Ortho-Rectified Mosaic (Pre Q/A) (Post Q/A)
