Selected Highlights

  • Expanded high-resolution satellite support Satellite support of RPC-formatted data has been expanded to include support for many additional sensors, such as Pleiades, SPOT-6, SPOT-7, KOMPSAT, and RapidEye. Now, you can maximize the use of nearly every commercial high-resolution satellite source.

  • Import UAV data - A new module in the ISPM Tools menu streamlines the import process for UAV data. It can automatically extract camera, photo, and exterior orientation parameters from EXIF tags stored in the image files.

  • Import IMAGINE Photogrammetry projects - A new module in ISPM imports IMAGINE Photogrammetry project block files (*.BLK) into ImageStation. Project parameters, photos and photo coordinates, camera, and control point data are included in the translation. The command works for projects that contain aerial frame photography and most satellite sensor projects, but will not import ADS, VisionMap, or CSM projects.

  • New and improved volume calculation and elevation processing ISDG has added a new command for calculating volumes of surfaces, such as stockpiles for cut and fill analysis. The Calculate Volume command can be executed on either a single area or subsets, and produces a textual report with the results. Further elevation processing is improved in ISDQ with a new simplified interface, based on over 30 Spatial Models, for better overall user experience. Support for additional elevation file formats and improved performance of reading LAS/LAZ formats is also provided.

  • Extended capabilitiesSome ImageStation products are compatible with GeoMedia Desktop 2018.

  • New Activation-based licensing - Starting with the Power Portfolio 2018 release, licenses are no longer based on Certificate-file based technology. Instead, licenses are based on Activation IDs, allowing you to activate products without providing Host IDs or other hardware-related parameters.
