Stunning geospatial data using rapid processing services

Our Data Processing service turns raw data into 2D and 3D products using the latest semi-autonomous photogrammetry methods

A brief introduction

What is it?

It's a service we provide where we take raw aerial survey data and process it into usable, insightful geospatial products such as true-orthophotos, DSMs and 3D mesh models.

What does it do?

For XCAM users, it allows you to focus on the data capture side of your business, and leave the processing to us.

How does it compare to other processing services?

Most processing operations are in-house to survey companies and not available as a service. There are some 'black-box' processing services out there but we don't really compare to them. We consult with you to make sure the data we produce is fit-for-purpose and right for you or your client.

What makes it unique?

We use a variety of methods that reduce the amount of hands-on processing. Using modern software processes this doesn't decrease the quality, it just speeds up the delivery times.

How much is it?

We work this out on a project basis and depends on what deliverables are needed and what deadlines there are.

Use Cases

Here are some examples of where our processing service works:

XCAM operators without the in-house skills for processing

Sometimes it's best to focus on what you do best. If that's flying survey, then let us do the processing for you.

Knowledge Transfer

We can give you all the necessary hardware and software to get the job done quickly and efficiently.

Short-term increase in capacity

If your flying programme is outrunning your processing chain, we can take the weight off.

Providing new derived datasets for your customers

With the on-set of 3D data in the geospatial world, being able to keep up with demand can be tricky.

We can take existing or new data and apply our modern methods to produce high quality 3D products.

Data Processing Options

We can produce a variety of datasets, depending on the source data provided. Here are some typical outputs:

Vertical Aerial Imagery

An orthomosaic produced from a series of overlapping aerial photographs.

Input needed: vertical (nadir) or oblique imagery with high overlap.

Oblique Aerial Imagery

Oblique images are georeferenced to give accurate position information.

Input needed: oblique imagery with high overlap.

3D Model

A photorealistic mesh model with detailed surface feature rendering.

Input needed: oblique imagery with high overlap.

NDVI

An analysis of colour and near-infrared imagery.

Input needed: vertical (nadir) colour and near-infrared imagery.

Thermal

A heat map showing variations in surface temperature.

Input needed: vertical (nadir) thermal data.

Elevation

A grid of heights representing surface elevation.

Input needed: vertical (nadir) or oblique imagery with high overlap.
