3D Modeling with SimActive: Leveling Up Commercial Drone Dat…

SimActive‘s Correlator3D is one of the tools that enables commercial drone operators to level up and play at the enterprise level.  SimActive has been a major player in the creation of photogrammetry solutions from aerial data since 2003.  They started by utilizing data from satellites and manned aircraft,  and their mature platform is a leader for government and enterprise customers. Now, SimActive solutions are available for use with drone data also – which allows large customers to choose the most cost effective data option for their mission.

SimActive Correlator3D takes data from any sensor and uses one software interface for processing.  Using the software with drone data is less expensive: but provides the same flexibility, sophistication and speed that large government and enterprise customers expect.  Now, version 8.0 offers even more functionality in the creation of 3D models.

“SimActive Inc., a world-leading developer of photogrammetry software, is proud to announce the release of version 8.0 with a new 3D modeling module for Correlator3DTM. The module allows the generation of 3D textured meshes to create photorealistic models, which can be exported in standard formats, including OBJ files,” says a company announcement.

“Adding a 3D modeling function addresses an increasing need in the industry, and the natural progression of our software workflow”, said Louis Simard, CTO of SimActive. “The module implements a new capability to bolster the same software at no additional cost for our users, ingrained with core SimActive principles: simple, fast, and precise.”
