Trimble Introduces New Digital Sensor System for Aerial Mapping
Fast, Flexible, Medium-Format Digital Imaging System Designed
The announcement was made today at INTERGEO 2010, the world's largest conference on geodesy, geoinformatics and land management.
By combining wide coverage and excellent stereo image geometry with low operating costs, the Trimble DSS WideAngle provides a significant productivity advantage for aerial mapping companies. Its medium-format, single-frame 60-megapixel camera delivers wide swaths of crisp, well-balanced digital color stereo imagery that are ideal for linear, irregular or small area mapping projects. Available lens options provide exceptional base-to-height ratio, enabling efficient digital elevation model (DEM) generation and contour mapping.
"The Trimble DSS WideAngle is a practical, cost-effective solution for many aerial mapping applications," said Adam Evans, product manager for the Trimble DSS. "And like all Trimble DSS systems, it has the key advantage of Direct Georeferencing technology, reducing the need for expensive and time-consuming ground control collection."
With options for pilot-only operation and easy integration on single-engine aircraft and helicopter platforms, the Trimble DSS offers high performance with low operating costs. Designed for flexible system deployment, efficient mission planning and simple post-mission image processing workflow, the Trimble DSS WideAngle includes:
The Trimble DSS WideAngle is fully compatible with Trimble INPHO photogrammetric software.
