The PHOTOMOD software supports the complete workflow of map production, from start to finish, in a powerful, cloud-hosted environment. This digital photogrammetric software, available as a service, creates metrically precise spatial data from many imaging systems, such as frame digital and film cameras, UAS, and high-resolution satellite scanners. Users can scale their geoprocessing tasks without investing in new IT and permanent software licenses.

Product Description 

PHOTOMOD supports all processing steps of digital photogrammetry with a high degree of automation: Aerial triangulation, generation of large area mosaics, creation of digital terrain and 3D city models and 3D feature extraction. PHOTOMOD can be applied to satellite, airborne, and UAS data. Using its spatial aerial triangulation and 2D and 3D feature extraction, you can generate 3D city models and 3D metrical vector models, and work with anaglyph stereo imagery.

PHOTOMOD gives you access to the full functionality of PHOTOMOD as well as additional selected packages including 2D&3D Feature Extraction, Orthorectification and Mosaicking, DTM/DSM generation, and the Full Photogrammetric Suite. Obtain metrically precise models and maps from a multitude of imaging systems, for tasks in cartography, cadastre, urban planning, environment monitoring, and spatial analysis.

Racur’s PHOTOMOD software combined with the scalable cloudeo Workbench brings flexible pricing, and easy access to remotely sensed imagery. Bring your data and programs or add premium imagery and programs from the cloudeo store. PHOTOMOD is readily installed on your workbench and automatically updated. We recommend using the Workbench Standard or Standard PLUS with PHOTOMOD.

PHOTOMOD Packages 

2D&3D feature extraction
The package supplies a full set of tools for 2D and 3D-vectorization (anaglyph stereo viewing) and editing of drawn terrain objects. You may use vectorized objects as a topographic basis of cartographic production or input them as initial data to create a geometric model scene during 3D modeling. The package includes 3D-Mod program for 3D modeling and exporting specially prepared 3D objects to DXF format.

Orthorectification and Mosaicking
During mosaic creation using PHOTOMOD Workbench tools, you can build single seamless, color balanced, and brightness-homogenous orthomosaic with high accuracy from separate images. Geometric and photometric distortions are adjusted during creation. Output products (orthomosaic) could be presented as a single frame or as a set of sheets in the specified cartographic projection with marginalia.
The system includes automatic and interactive options used for building rectification areas and flexible parameters settings for the output mosaic, including color and brightness correction for the whole images block, seams feathering, recalculation of output data to any coordinate system, automatic accuracy control, distributed processing, and more.

DTM/DSM generation
The package automatically creates digital terrain models (DTM), digital surface models (DSM), and dense DSMs (Semi-Global Matching method) from aerial and satellite images. The digital terrain model created in PHOTOMOD Workbench ensures high quality orthomosaics, and which serves as a source of detailed information about terrain relief used to solve analytical tasks.
The package supports any type of digital elevation model: pickets, breaklines, TIN, DEM, contour lines, point clouds, etc.

Full photogrammetric suite
The complete suite of PHOTOMOD for remote sensing data processing contains all the tools for advanced photogrammetric workflows from aerial triangulation to 3D feature extraction.
The suite provides a closed production cycle, and involves the generation of many kinds of value-added products: digital maps, DEM, orthomosaics, 3D-vectors, point clouds, etc., without the use of third party solutions.
