SimActive Implements New Workflow for Phase One 280MP Aerial System

Montreal, Canada, June 11th, 2024 – SimActive Inc., a world-leading developer of photogrammetry software, announces the release of a new Correlator3D™ version with enhanced support of the Phase One 280MP Aerial System.


The new version allows importing data from the dual lens and combining their respective field-of-view seamlessly for the user. The imagery is processed in Phase One’s native IIQ format, without going through an intermediate format. Working directly with the compressed files allows for much easier data management on large projects.

“Just as we were the first to implement the processing of PhaseOne’s IIQ format, we are now the first to provide a complete workflow for the 280MP systems” said Louis Simard, Chief Technology Officer at SimActive. “Many of aerial clients are moving towards larger format sensors such as those from Phase One, and Correlator3D can handle them all.”
