The new highly automated features for water handling are enhancing the quality of nearly every product throughout the workflow. This includes tools like the new Water Mask & Geometry Editor to efficiently quality control and edit water masks as well as the updated Seamline & Blending Mask Editor for intuitive generation of homogenous water surfaces in orthomosaics. With UltraMap version 6.0, customers obtain highly accurate, more robust and automatically generated DSM and DTM results plus seamless orthomosaics over land and water for any project size.

In addition, performance for most efficient large-scale data production has been optimized by introducing more effective file management, leading to faster loading times, viewing speeds, saving and export of products in the Ortho Viewer.

For best data interaction and processing, the UltraMap team redesigned the Ortho reprocessing workflow. It now allows customers to reprocess edits across all ortho products in an even more concise and targeted manner by automatically identifying tiles that are outdated and need automated reprocessing. New features like the processing queue or undo/redo edit options support straightforward data production.

I am already excited – soon our customers will be as well.”
