Inpho 5.7 from Trimble for Greater Computation and Improved Visualization

By CIOReview | Friday, May 23, 2014

SUNNYVALE, CA: Trimble, a manufacturer of GPS receivers, laser rangefinders and inertial navigation systems, has announced updates to its Inpho 5.7 software suite offering faster automatic computation and improved visualization. These updates are expected to help geospatial professionals who are into production of digital photogrammetry – a process of obtaining measurements of objects in photograph using computer – and LIDAR deliverables.

Inpho software transforms aerial images to point clouds and surface models, orthophoto mosaics and digitized 3D features using latest photogrammetry techniques. With the latest update, expanded core processing and fine tuned algorithms enable photogrammetrists to reduce the time to produce deliverables by up to 75 percent.  The Inpho 5.7 software comes with a new 3D point cloud viewer for enhanced visualization, navigation and editing of project data. It also provides ease of management of huge volumes of 3D data.

Applications such as mapping, forestry, agriculture, mining, utility and energy, urban development, defense, archaeology, environmental monitoring and disaster response have utilized Inpho software’s capability to standardize and enhance image data. The various modules in the software suite can be together used a complete system or as individual components.

"The efficient generation of high quality, accurate deliverables is fundamental to our customers within the photogrammetry profession," said Alain Samaha, business area director of GIS and Software for Trimble's Geospatial Division. "The improvements in Inpho 5.7 address the needs to streamline our customers' workflows and increase their efficiency, allowing them to reduce costs and better serve their clients."
