2d3 has released version 1.0 of its AltiMap software, which creates accurate geospatial maps from aerial imagery captured by high resolution cameras. AltiMap supports cameras ranging from consumer-level digital cameras up to the most advanced aerial imaging systems.

Traditional automated mapping systems have been reliant upon aircraft instrumentation and camera hardware. AltiMap allows for the automated generation of the same quality of image product using images alone or images and a commercially available GPS receiver. The geo-located results can be exported as single images or tiled hierarchies of images, compatible with almost all mapping software such as Google Earth and ArcView GIS.

“With the advent of freely available geospatial software and tools, we see great opportunity for products such as AltiMap to accelerate the production of geospatial imagery,” said Jon Damush, 2d3 president. “AltiMap was developed to make it easy for anyone, from expert image analysts to aerial photographers, to create geo-located map product from aerial imagery without having to be an expert at image manipulation or photogrammetry. Anyone familiar with attempting to use consumer photo stitching software to make a map will immediately recognize the benefits of AltiMap.”

2d3's Advanced Imaging Group specializes in applying vision science techniques to still and motion imagery to allow decision makers to better sift through and understand this mountain of media. 2d3 has specific expertise in intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaisance (ISR) operations, especially those from airborne platforms such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.
