Area of Application
PHOTOMOD provides a closed production cycle, and involves the generation of many kinds of value-added products: digital maps, DEM, orthomosaics, 3D-vectors without the use of third party solutions.
The PHOTOMOD software complex is used in all areas where metric information about the Earth with maximal precision is required.
PHOTOMOD allows the user to solve a whole range of tasks in cartography, cadastre, environment monitoring and spatial analysis.
The system provides a highly precise cartographic data for integrated GIS, geoportals, and cartographic web-applications.
See user experience at the Resources page.
- Spatial aerial triangulation
The functions of the aerial triangulation in PHOTOMOD are required to accurately calculate the orientation parameters of images and
provide a high geometrical accuracy of the output products: DEM, orthomosaics, digital maps.
Arial triangulation results (orientation parameters) are calculated automatically, and the system provides a full range of tools for
accuracy evaluation, visual control and errors analysis.
- Digital terrain models
PHOTOMOD allows the user to automatically create digital elevation models and digital surface models from aerial and satellite images.
The digital terrain model created in PHOTOMOD ensures high quality of orthomosaic, and also serves as a source of detailed information
about terrain relief and is used to solve analytical tasks.
- 2D and 3D-vectorization
The PHOTOMOD system supplies the user with a full set of tools for 2D and 3D-vectorization and editing of drawn terrain objects.
You may use vectorized objects as a topographic basis of cartographic production or input them as initial data to create mathematic
(geometric) model scene during terrain 3D modeling.
- Orthorectification and mosaic creation
During mosaic creation using PHOTOMOD tools you can build continuous, color balanced and brightness homogenous orthomosaic with
high accuracy from separate images. Geometric and photometric distortions are adjusted during the creation operation. Output product
(orthomosaic) could be presented as a single frame or a set of sheets in specified cartographic projection with marginalia.
The PHOTOMOD software package includes features for creation of 3D models using stereovectorization results. The resulting model,
due to the high quality metric may be used for solving applied analytical problems. And thanks to the visual appeal and clarity they may
be useful when creating a vivid and compelling multimedia presentations and videos.
- Map making
The PHOTOMOD delivery set includes GIS-application — GIS Panorama 2011 Mini used for mapmaking purpose. The application is used for
the creation, editing and printing of digital maps and city plans for different purposes, databases administration with setup of
custom forms for viewing tables, creating queries and reporting to view territory planning schemes, urban cadastre and other problems.
