Description

SURE Aerial transforms massive amounts of imagery into highly detailed 2.5D/3D models, point clouds, textured meshes and seamless true orthophotos in a streamlined process. 

Mesh formats (e.g. OBJ/Cesium/Collada) for guaranteed compatibility. Modularity, stop & continue, external point cloud support e.g. LiDAR and polygon region definitions (AOI/water) offer full flexibility. 

SURE Software perfectly scales with data volume and available hardware through elastic distributed processing. Rental licenses can be added anytime during ongoing processing.

SURE technology is also available for integrators. 

 

Produce precise large scale point clouds, elevation data, true orthophotos and more. SURE Aerial includes all of the SURE Pro features with unlimited scalability for large datasets. Conduct processing on normal hardware no matter whether high-resolution large frame, medium format oblique or UAV imagery.

Fully automatic workflow

Generate Tiled DSMs, True Orthophotos and Meshes completely automatically. No manual seam line editing or expert knowledge required to produce quality outputs.

Region of interest definition

Process only what is important for your project without all the extras. Take control of your time and efficiency per project.

Unlimited Scalability

Whether 2,000 or 20,000 high resolution images, SURE Aerial scales with you and your project needs.

Cost efficient image acquisition and processing

Choose image acquisition that fits best for you. Acquire Oblique images or even get high quality from from Nadir flights. Experience highly efficient processing built for handling large datasets on your existing hardware. 

Colorized DSMs

Generate colorized DSMs to represent accurate height differentiation data.

  • Automatic matching
    Semi-Global-Matching variation (tSGM). By efficiently matching on automatically selected stereo models and subsequently merging and refining the result in the point cloud generation, low noise point clouds with quality information can be retrieved. Hierarchical approaches speed up the process and enable the support of depth large variations in the scene.
