SimActive Inc., a developer of photogrammetry software, has released Correlator3D version 7.1 with new technology for true orthophotos.

Users can now automatically generate enhanced true orthomosaics through a technological breakthrough that significantly minimizes artifacts, the company said.

This major release successfully addresses the industry-wide challenges of generating true orthophotos without artifacts, such as distortions around buildings and vertical structures. Along with the enhanced output quality, the overall mosaicking speed of the software has increased five-fold, furthering the gap with competing tools.

“While DTM-based orthophoto generation has been the norm for decades, we observe a shift toward true orthos,” said Louis Simard, CTO of SimActive. “The advancement provides consistent quality of results without any manual intervention.”
