(Heerbrugg, 6 November 2009) Leica Geosystems’ line sensor workflow software Leica XPro has been updated with several enhancements. Leica XPro covers the entire line sensor workflow - from data download to image generation. Users of the new version XPro 4.2 can now take advantage of on-the-fly generated images in triangulation and many other improvements to increase productivity and efficiency.
New point measurement capability from triangulation The Leica XPro software provides the most complete and advanced ground processing workflow from data download to image generation. A significant enhancement in Leica XPro 4.2 is the new point measurement capability from triangulation. Users can now take the advantage of the on-the-fly generated Level 1 images directly in the triangulation process. This new feature further improves the workflow and provides higher performance rates.
Advanced capabilities for Image Viewer The Image Viewer within Leica XPro 4.2 has been further improved. Image footprints are now shown when takes are loaded by session. It also allows loading images easier with remembering mapping projection. The coordinate values in the status bar are made selectable for further use. Finally, the left/right image handling in the Image Viewer is with the full DRA functionality support.
Fast generation of deliverables Leica XPro is designed to deliver stereo-viewable images or high-resolution orthophotos with extreme speed and minimal user interaction. In Leica XPro 4.2 the radiometric corrections (BRDF) has been further improved using specific masking information while generating image statistics. The Radiometric Image Chain implemented throughout the Leica XPro workflow leads to perfect image radiometry. Generated products are ready for further handling by a wide range of digital photogrammetry software packages.
Leica XPro 4.2 is immediately available and has been delivered to first customers. Customers with software maintenance contract receive the Leica XPro 4.2 updates free of charge.
