ERDAS LPS 2010 - Photogrammetry System Released

ERDAS released LPS 2010. LPS Core now includes ERDAS MosaicPro (as well as IMAGINE Advantage). In addition, this release provides improved sensor support and increased performance. LPS is a powerful softcopy photogrammetry system for a variety of workflows, defence, remote-area mapping, transportation planning, orthophoto production and close-range applications. With automated algorithms, fast processing and a tight focus on workflow, LPS ensures productivity.

By adding ERDAS MosaicPro to LPS 2010, customers will have decreased memory use and greater processing speed, making it easier to mosaic a large number of images. As part of the streamlining of mosaicking across the product lines, it includes the merged functionality of the IMAGINE Mosaic Tool. In addition, there is a new illumination equalisation colour balancing method.

LPS 2010 is compatible in data processing from a wide variety of sensors. It is compatible for GeoEye and WorldView rigorous models from multiple formats, including NCDRD. There is the support for KOMPSAT RPC and RapidEye NITF RPC as well.

Other performance improvements include accelerated vertical datum handling when using large DEMs in ortho-resampling and calibration, as well as better memory handling in the Terrain Prep tool. The Terrain Editor has received several productivity enhancing interface changes. ERDAS has also added grid correction for modelling focal plane distortions in ORIMA. The computed grid can be imported to LPS.

For approved customers, LPS eATE preview provides an advance look at the new ERDAS terrain processing solution. It enables users to generate high-resolution terrain information from stereo imagery like never before, ensuring speed and accuracy, providing an unparalleled environment for processing terrain data from airborne and satellite sensors. This solution is currently planned for general release in early 2010.

“With an increasing number of sensors delivering vast amounts of raw imagery daily, production mapping professionals need powerful tools that boost their productivity,” said Mladen Stojic, Senior Vice President, Product Management & Marketing, ERDAS.
