ALDOT Uses SimActive Software to Support Tornado Recovery

By Eric Van Rees - 14th November 2023 - 08:53

SimActive, a developer of photogrammetry software, announces the use of Correlator3D by the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) to process drone imagery for damage assessment.

Earlier this year, a powerful tornado ripped through the southwest portion of the city of Selma in Alabama. ALDOT quickly collected more than 18,000 images of the area and within 24 hours, processed the data using SimActive software and delivered digital surface models and orthomosaics.

“Time is critical when responding to disasters like this one”, said JD D’Arville, UAS Program Administrator at ALDOT. “SimActive’s Correlator3D allows us to process huge datasets rapidly and distribute them to the many groups that need the data.”
