SimWright is an image processing and software development firm dedicated to maximizing the uses for remotely sensed data. SimWright’s software applications optimize the geospatial feature data that can be derived from existing imagery. StereoGIS™ allows an agency to perform accurate 2D/3D planimetric feature extraction and digital elevation modeling in house. Spidar ™ allows geospecific 3D visual modeling and texturing of cultural features within a stereo image. SimWright uses these tools and others to provide quality, cost effective services in feature extraction, ortho-photo production, airport planning, airport layout plans, crop damage assessment, and GIS web application development.
Product Name: Spidar™
The Spidar™ stereo modeling tool operates as a plug-in to MultiGen® Creator™ or ModelBuilder 3D™. Spidar™ allows the user to view stereo imagery data pairs within Creator or ModelBuilder 3D and extract polygonal models of buildings and other cultural features. The extracted features are geocoded so no further geo-referencing is needed to place the features properly in the scene.
StereoGIS™ is a custom application that enables the user to analyze imagery of a given area in a 3-dimensional stereo format and easily extract, edit, and/or create 2D or 3D vector data products, and high quality digital elevation models from the imagery.
SweetSpot™ is the latest offering of high-end cost effective software from SimWright. This tool was developed in response to users primarily in the DOD that require accurate geopositional updating using a known accurate source. The source database of choice is DPPDB (Digital Point Positioning Database) that exists at the DOD Secret clearance level. Due to the relevancy of this data set, an NTM (National Technical Means) stereo image pair (or single image) may need to have its accuracy improved using SweetSpot™.
