October 31, 2017 – SimActive is pleased to announce an automated solution for direct georeferencing from real-time kinematic (RTK) positioning. Within the new workflow feature, users can easily get high accuracy in projects without the use of ground control points (GCP), saving considerable time in collecting and processing data.
Martin Instrument, a reseller of SimActive and surveying equipment, is one of the many users benefitting from the automation. “Direct georeferencing greatly helps reducing cost for applications like corridor mapping,” said Mike Minick, VP Sales at Martin Instrument. “The new automated option within SimActive software for direct georeferencing greatly facilitates the user workflow.”
“With RTK GPS available on drones, the use of direct georeferencing is growing within the industry,” said Louis Simard, CTO of SimActive. “Correlator3D™ allows users to maximize their hardware and software investment.”
