Producing accurate 3D models of sites worldwide, without having to engage in expensive and time-consuming, or sometimes impossible airborne campaigns - is now child’s play, thanks to Pléiades.
By combining two technologies, Pixel Factory™ and Street Factory™, Airbus Defence and Space has proven its ability to successfully and accurately produce a 3D model of the City of Berkeley, California. Revealing structures of buildings, colours of their façades, the shapes of roofs and the various aspects of the vegetation – the impressive 3D model captures all the detail.
Thirteen Pléiades images, forming nine stereo pairs, were combined to produce the 3D model offering precision, close to that of the GEO Elevation1 products and showing the perfect footprint of each building.
A new era in developing 3D products ideally suited for mapping, defence, risk management, emergency simulation and urban management now begins.
