Orbit UAS Mapping

UAS based Professional High-Precision Mapping Software

 

Going beyond mainstream. A reliable, high precision and accurate UAS mapping software based on photogrammetry made for the professional.

 

The Orbit UAS Mapping Software is a fast, automated, and extensive UAS mapping solution proved to deal with the professional land surveying market. This UAS mapping software covers all postflight requirements to setup and automate highly precise mapping and survey projects of your specific aerial system resulting in ready-to-use quality orthophoto, digital surface model, detailed accuracy reports and stereo maps for 3D viewing and state-of-the-art mapping jobs.

 
Beyond the mainstream, Orbit UAS Mapping software delivers top quality results for today’s professional unmanned aerial mapping systems.

Preflight: Plan your Flight in a GIS Environment

The UAS Mapping software provides for all generic UAV systems the tools in GIS required for a stereo or line coverage flight and enables the user to postprocess its imagery to a high precision mapping results. Bundled with the powerful Orbit GIS engine, the software enables to visualize the flight plan of your hardware manufacturer or creates a flight plan by defining an area coverage or line inspection project. The software calculates the required waypoints and writes down a full mono or stereo image coverage of your project.
 
 

Postflight : automated high precision 3D map creation in a stereo GIS environment

The post-processing of the UAS flight data is easily done by calling the postflight part of the 10.9 version. First, the UAS data importer feeds the mapping project with the necessary basic data coming from your flight data. Hereafter an automated triangulation based on several point detection and matching techniques with automated blunder detection successfully complete your bundle block adjustment in no time.
 
The DSM, contour map, stereo project, volume calculator and orthophoto are finally made on different scales and allow the professional user to map in the user-friendly 2D or 3D-stereo Orbit GIS environment. A high-detailed accuracy report gives you the keys to prove your UAV quality in the land surveying world. In other words, the complete workflow from flightplan or raw UAV imagery - to orthophoto, dsm, & stereo project - to the final 3D GIS mapping is professionally enhanced from now on by this 10.9 version.

 

Going further: integrating your UAS data into point clouds and high altitude aerial data

Orbit GT offers a comprehensive mapping software portfolio to go far beyond the automated processes of UAS Mapping.

With the Orbit Strabo photogrammetric software, the professional user can intervene in the automated processes to maximize the accuracy of the results.  Even the most difficult flights, complex projects and demanding data postprocessing can be successfully finalized and optimized. 

With the Orbit Softcopy software, the professional user can combine the UAV stereoproject with a standard aerial stereo project and succesfully finalize a stereo restitution job. Huge mapping jobs can be done by the professional in no time. The softcopy software can be visualized using for instance the Strabox stereo visualization hardware.

With the Orbit Mobile Mapping software, the professional user can combine Mobile mapping laser scan pointclouds with the processed aerial uav pointclouds.

 

Business Workflows and Results

UAS Mapping results can be integrated in any GIS or CAD package, or used with the Orbit portfolio for a wide variety of applications such as  Volume calculation, integration with high altitude, wide coverage aerial data, point clouds or LiDAR data collected by mobile or aerial mapping systems, stereo and 3D mapping.

Orbit UAS mapping software comes in two versions: Orbit UAS Mapping & Orbit UAS Mapping Pro. 

 
 
Orbit UAS Mapping
 
The Orbit UAS Mapping software is a turn-key solution for accurate mapping using an unmanned aerial vehicle or system (UAV, UAS). It covers the pre- and post-flight requirements for execution of a mapping project.
 
The Orbit UAS Mapping solution includes all core Orbit GIS functionalities.
 
The Orbit UAS Mapping solution delivers:
  • Flight plan (area of coverage, corridor mapping)
  • Processing of post-flight images,
  • Creation of DEM and TIN
  • Creation of Orthophoto
 
 
Orbit UAS Mapping Pro
 
Orbit UAS Mapping Pro adds stereo mapping to the Orbit UAS Mapping software. The Orbit UAS Mapping Pro solution includes all core Orbit GIS functionalities and all Orbit UAS Mapping features.
 
The Orbit UAS Mapping Pro solution delivers:
  • Flight plan (area of coverage, corridor mapping)
  • Processing of post-flight images,
  • Creation of DEM and TIN
  • Creation of Orthophoto
  • Stereovisualization and –restitution (softcopy anaglyph)
  • Volume calculations
  • Contour line maps
 
 
Orbit Strabo Photogrammetry
 
Advanced users may opt for the high-end photogrammetry solution “Orbit Strabo” to have in depth control of the post-processing. For more information, please consult the Orbit Photogrammetry portfolio or contact your Orbit GT Account Manager.
