Huntsville, AL GeoCue Corporation is pleased to announce the addition of support for Point Grey Research’s Ladybug camera technology to the GeoCue Mobile Mapping System (MMS) CuePac. The Ladybug series is one of the most prevalent spherical camera systems for high performance mobile mapping applications.
GeoCue Corporation executed a licensing agreement with Point Grey Research in 2011 to integrate components of the Ladybug processing workflow into the GeoCue workflow management system. This integration will provide exceptional value to customers who use this camera technology.
Among the new features supported in the MMS CuePac are:
Import of Ladybug "pgr" files with the original track correctly geocoded in the GeoCue Map view
Correction of the track to a Position and Orientation System (POS) trajectory (if POS data are available)
Thinning of camera stations to a user specified track spacing
High performance "Development" of the raw pgr-based images into spherical images for use in downstream processing applications. This development can be performed on servers or distributed workstations using the GeoCue Command Dispatch System (requires the Departmental level GeoCue Server)
Direct viewing of Ladybug spherical images in a new integrated GeoCue Client viewer by simply selecting Ladybug camera stations in the GeoCue Map View
These new features allow GeoCue customers to manage very large MMS projects involving Ladybug spherical images. Tens of thousands of images can now be systematically processed via the GeoCue distributed processing system with project files transparently managed in GeoCue. Individual photos are immediately accessible to multiple users via the GeoCue Map View. Since the GeoCue Map View includes integrated Web Mapping Services such as Google Earth, Bing and Open Street Map, there is no longer a need to separately manage Ladybug images in disconnected, external applications.
GeoCue will be previewing these new features at the 2012 ASPRS Conference in Sacramento, California during the week of March 19-23, 2012.
