UltraMap/Essentials

 

The UltraMap/Essentials module is responsible for converting the raw images taken by the UltraCam into

standard file formats that can be used by further processing steps in UltraMap and/or third party software systems. The UltraMap/Essentials module is divided into two processing steps:


UltraMap/RawDataCenter

UltraMap/RawDataCenter

The UltraMap/RawDataCenter step is responsible for processing the UltraCam imagery from level-0 to level-2. By exploiting the distributed UltraMap Framework, processing tasks can be handled in parallel.

 

UltraMap/Radiometry

UltraMap/Radiometry

The UltraMap/Radiometry step is responsible for defining the final color of the level-2 data. It also provides model-based radiometric correction to compensate for or remove hotspots, atmospheric effects and haze, exploiting Dragonfly technology for image interaction and visualization of large image blocks.

 

UltraMap/AT

UltraMap/AT

The Aerial triangulation (AT) module provides an interactive workflow while calculating image correspondences in order to generate a precise exterior orientation for an entire image block by means of a least-squares bundle adjustment.

 

UltraMap/DenseMatcher

UltraMap/DenseMatcher

The UltraMap/DenseMatcher module creates high-density point clouds and DSMs and DTMs from level-2 images, extrapolating precise exterior orientation data to generate per-pixel height values. The 3D point cloud and the DSM data can be exported in standard file formats for further 3rd party processing.

 

UltraMap/OrthoPipeline

UltraMap/OrthoPipeline

The UltraMap/OrthoPipeline module generates the final ortho mosaic from all available inputs such as level-2 imagery, AT results, radiometric settings, and the DSM/DTM. Two different ortho images can be generated: DSMOrthos and DTMOrthos.
