SimActive Inc., a developer of photogrammetry software, announces that its Correlator3D software has been used by Air Data Solutions (ADS) in Florida to determine financial assistance following Hurricane Dorian.

Aerial imagery was collected before the storm for pre-hurricane assessment and after for damage analysis.

A Phase One 100MP aerial camera owned by ADS was flown to gather high-resolution images of the affected areas. The data was then processed by SimActive software to create mosaics of orthophotos.

The resulting geospatial data helped government authorities to calculate recovery aid funds.

“We have been impressed by the accuracy and speed of Correlator3D to support such a time-critical mission,” said Don Cummins, President of ADS. “Combined with a high-end aerial sensor, SimActive provides the best tool for emergency response.”

Air Data Solutions is an aerial, terrestrial, and aquatic data collection and modeling company.
