SimActive Inc., developer of photogrammetry software Correlator3D, has partnered with Midwest Aerial to perform damage assessments of Hurricane Michael.

Correlator3D was used to process large format imagery collected by Midwest over Mexico Beach, Florida. The joint effort resulted in highly precise geospatial data, including a digital surface model (DSM), an orthomosaic and a 3D model, the company said.

“This is a terrible disaster for the people affected and we hope they can benefit from geospatial technologies available,” said Philippe Simard, president of SimActive.

SimActive’s Correlator3D is a patented end-to-end photogrammetry solution for the generation of high-quality geospatial data from satellite and aerial imagery, including UAVs. Correlator3D performs aerial triangulation and produces dense DSM, digital terrain models, point clouds, orthomosaics, 3D models and vectorized 3D features.

Powered by GPU technology and multi-core CPUs, Correlator3D ensures high processing speed to support rapid production of large datasets, the company added.

Midwest Aerial Photography focuses on acquiring high-quality aerial imagery and companion data in support of photogrammetric mapping projects across the United States and Canada. Midwest partners and clients include federal, state and local government agencies, as well as photogrammetric firms and architectural and engineering companies.
