VisionMap is to release LightSpeed 4.0, the newest version of its flagship photogrammetric processing suite. LightSpeed 4.0 includes several exciting new features, particularly in Dense DSM production. A new photogrammetric dense point cloud module has been introduced to LightSpeed based on nFrames’ Semi-Global Matching (SGM) algorithm, allowing for faster and more accurate dense DSM generation. Thanks to this development, VisionMap’s A3 Edge mapping system can produce better than LIDAR-quality DSM, with 2-3 times higher resolution and productivity. A3 Edge is able to survey vast areas significantly faster than LIDAR thanks to its unique imaging technology. Additionally, a revolutionary upgrade has been made to the LightSpeed Control Centre, featuring an intuitive Windows-based UI. Some of the new capabilities include drag and drop functionality, hotkeys, flexible sorting options and another new feature is Timeline Report, an advanced management tool that allows monitoring the job progression and parallelization throughout the servers. www.visionmap.com.
