Virtual Surveyor drone surveying and mapping software has added new functionality that enables users to process larger projects without buying more powerful computers or expensive cloud services. The enhancement is among several included in Virtual Surveyor 6.2 released in response to requests from an international client base that doubled in 2018. “Our objective with Version 6.2 is to make our users more productive while saving them money by eliminating the need to invest in new hardware or processing services,” said Tom Op ‘t Eyndt, CEO of Virtual Surveyor NV in Belgium. “We have addressed the fact that drones are capturing more data at higher resolution, resulting in enormous files sizes.” Virtual Surveyor 6.2 solves the problem of large files by offering enhanced Clipping and Mosaicking functionality. Users can now merge multiple smaller processed chunks of orthophotos and digital surface models (DSM) into a single project and create smooth edges between these pieces with the new clipping tool.
