SimActive Inc., a developer of photogrammetry software, has launched an automated solution for direct georeferencing from real-time kinematic (RTK) positioning.

Within the new workflow feature, users can achieve get high accuracy in projects without the use of ground control points (GCP), saving time in collecting and processing data.

Martin Instrument, a reseller of SimActive and surveying equipment, is benefitting from the automation. “Direct georeferencing greatly helps reducing cost for applications like corridor mapping,” said Mike Minick, vice president of sales at Martin Instrument. “The new automated option within SimActive software for direct georeferencing greatly facilitates the user workflow.”

“With RTK GPS available on drones, the use of direct georeferencing is growing within the industry,” said Louis Simard, CTO of SimActive. “Correlator3D allows users to maximize their hardware and software investment.”
