Tel Aviv, Israel – November 3, 2015 — VisionMap, a leading provider of aerial survey and mapping systems, announced that its A3 Edge Digital Mapping System was recently used to map wildlife in Uganda’s Murchison Falls National Park. A3 Edge provides an efficient solution for detecting, tracking and estimating wildlife populations.
The A3 Edge camera surveyed the park from an altitude of 4,000 ft. AGL, capturing 3.5 cm resolution imagery at a rate of 225 km2/ hour. A3 Edge utilizes a unique “sweep” capture technology that provides quick, high resolution coverage of vast areas.
Among the animals identified in the images were antelopes, elephants, hippopotamuses and giraffes. The animals’ locations are clearly visible in the aerial images, and the automatic target recognition (ATR) capability available with VisionMap systems makes it easy to calculate the number of animals in a particular area.
VisionMap’s LightSpeed processing system automatically processes VisionMap images, producing AT, orthophoto, DSM, 3D models, and geo-referenced vertical and oblique images. The system’s fast turnaround time makes it possible to regularly survey the area, and collect useful information about the animals’ behaviors and trends.
VisionMap is a leading provider of state-of-the-art digital aerial survey and mapping systems. Its innovative data acquisition and automatic processing systems optimize mapping work, setting a new standard for productivity in the geospatial data industry. The systems support extremely large scale projects and automatically produce aerial triangulations, DSM and orthophoto mosaic as well as stereo models and geo-referenced oblique images. VisionMap systems are successfully deployed around the world. www.visionmap.com.
