A new powerful version of Carlson’s post-flight photogrammetry software, PhotoCapture, was released this week. This latest release introduces both new features and updates to the cloud-based processing software.

It also includes higher resolution basemaps for background map layers and improved graphics for project reports. Other improvements include:

– An improved Ground Control Point (GCP) measuring interface
– Faster tile loading on the Survey Canvas
– DXF export capabilities
– CRD import and export capabilities
– Improved controls for 3D navigation
– Higher-resolution DEMs
– The ability to contour maps on a mesh & more

New users have the opportunity to try Carlson PhotoCapture for 30-days once they register for an account. Upon verification, users can immediately begin working with the software and start processing a job.

“Users shouldn’t have to pay for software every month unless they actually use it,” says Steve Cummings, Carlson PhotoCapture Support. “With PhotoCapture, they only need to pay a small yearly membership and buy image processing when they need it.”

Carlson PhotoCapture allows users to process their post-flight drone data with only a computer or laptop and an internet connection. The software allows users to generate interactive 3D maps of sites and capture accurate 3D site data from a drone flight. Within the PhotoCapture 3D Survey Canvas, users can draw lines, points, breaklines, generate contours, and triangulate surfaces. Projects can be exported for additional work within Carlson office software or shared with others.
