2d3 Launches AltiMap

AltiMap dramatically accelerates the production time of geo-registered maps from aerial imagery, by automatically creating mosaics from high- resolution photographs.

October 26, 2009 -- 2d3, Inc. (www.2d3.com), a leading provider of vision science solutions for industrial, defense, and entertainment applications, announced today the release of version 1.0 of its AltiMap software.  The new software was developed to address the need to create accurate, geospatial maps from aerial imagery captured by high resolution cameras.  AltiMap is available in several configurations to support cameras ranging from consumer available digital cameras up to the most advanced aerial imaging systems.

Traditional automated mapping systems have been reliant upon costly and complex aircraft instrumentation and camera hardware.  AltiMap removes this dependency and 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.  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,” commented Jon Damush, 2d3’s President, “Anyone familiar with attempting to use consumer photo stitching software to make a map will immediately recognize the benefits of AltiMap.”
