Insitu Announces High Accuracy Photogrammetry for Aerial Surveys

Insitu has announced the successful integration of a 50-megapixel camera into its ScanEagle Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) for delivering High Accuracy Photogrammetric (HAP) aerial imagery. This new capability is part of Insitu's INEXA Solutions, a comprehensive suite of remote sensing products and information delivery services for enterprise customers, particularly mining, oil and gas operations. The HAP-equipped ScanEagle remotely surveys broad areas quickly, accurately, and safely — due to ScanEagle's proven Beyond Visual Line of Sight performance and Insitu's specialized direct georeferencing system, combined with the accuracy of the carefully selected, purpose-built 50-megapixel aerial camera. Insitu has been a pioneer, performer,... (read more)

Essential Energy Use Innovative Technology to Manage Vegetation

Australian energy distributor Essential Energy has contracted NM Group to map, analyse and report on vegetation risks which could pose future safety and reliability issues across its overhead electricity network. The program will use innovative remote sensing and 3D modelling technologies around nearly 85,000km of powerline. This will enable improved prioritisation and planning of vegetation management activities around the powerline network. The project will use aerial LiDAR survey to collect and process data across an area of almost 160,000 km2, spread across regional and rural NSW. A range of powerful techniques turn network data into intelligent 3D models, facilitating precise... (read more)

ISPRS Geospatial Week 2017 - Collaboration and Big Data

Ian Dowman reports on the ISPRS Geospatial Week (GSW) giving a good indication of current developments in photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information science and the way in which this is progressing in China. ISPRS has now established the GSW as a regular biennial event. This year it was held at Wuhan in China, hosted by LIESMARS, the geomatics centre at Wuhan University. The meeting inevitably had a Chinese flavour to it, but did demonstrate a number of interesting trends. The programme was divided into eleven workshops, each organised by one or more ISPRS working group, so although the themes... (read more)

Leica Airborne Imaging Capabilities Enhanced with Hyperspec Sensors

Leica Geosystems and Headwall Photonics announces the establishment of a partnership agreement whereby Leica will resell and integrate Headwall’s line of hyperspectral imaging sensors into their airborne product portfolio. Leica have selected Headwall’s hyperspectral imaging sensors to meet the growing demand for advanced hyperspectral sensors that acquire imagery data, which includes both spatial and spectral (chemical) information within the mapping area of interest. Hyperspectral imagery allows users to obtain critical information relative to the material composition of objects in the field of view of the sensor. The sensors generate a very high resolution hyperspectral datacube that allows users to map... (read more)
