With the UltraCam Hawk, Microsoft now offers an unparalleled upgrade path through a complete, multi-tiered product line of systems designed to meet varying project requirements and budget restrictions and that can be upgraded to the next system level through retrofit. The UltraCam Hawk provides smaller mapping companies with an affordable option for offering a digital platform and expanding their aerial services.
Microsoft UltraMap is a state-of-the-art, end-to-end, complete photogrammetric workflow system that provides highly automated processing capabilities to allow organizations to rapidly generate quality data products from an UltraCam flight. UltraMap is designed to process huge amount of UltraCam data in the shortest possible time with the highest degree of automatization, supported by guided manual interaction, quality control tools and powerful visualization.
With version 3, UltraMap continues its innovation trend that has already delivered groundbreaking features such as monolithic stitching and automatic project-based color balancing for homogeneous image block color correction, but now also provides revolutionary, automated 3D data generation and ortho image processing features.
UltraMap v3 delivers exceptional quality DSMOrthos and DTMOrthos at high accuracies and without any manual interaction, since the UltraMap v3 ortho mosaicking approach takes into account all available inputs (i.e. a DSM and the automatically generated DTM). UltraMap v3 is able to generate seamlines at desired paths; remaining seamline editing for challenging regions is made using UltraMap’s DragonFly technology, a responsive visualization engine that allows users to conduct quality control on large image blocks in a quick and smooth fashion.
