Ramat Gan, Israel, June 16, 2014—VisionMap Ltd and Acute3D announced today the first sale of their joint 3D modeling solution to the Tianjin institute of Survey & Mapping. The bundle solution combines VisionMap’s A3 Airborne Digital Mapping System and Acute3D’s Smart3DCapture™software. This is the first and only end-to-end solution providing high-resolution 3D models of vast areas, and high-quality mapping products – all from one system.
Thanks to VisionMap’s proprietary scanning technology, the A3 airborne camera is able to quickly cover vast areas in extremely high resolution. The camera ‘sweeps’ back and forth across track capturing rooftops and facades simultaneously – making it ideal for 3D city modeling. The A3 LightSpeed processing system’s robust aerial triangulation is performed on vertical and oblique imagery simultaneously. Using the imagery captured by the A3 camera, Acute3D’ssoftware creates the highest quality 3D models in a fully automatic manner.
After extensive research, the Tianjin Institute found VisionMap and Acute3D to provide the ideal turnkey solution for their needs. Particularly important to Tianjin was the solution’s seamless and automatic workflow from capture to final product. The Tianjin Institute will be undertaking a mapping and 3D modeling project covering14,000 km2 of the Tianjin region.
VisionMap is a leading provider of digital mapping systems. VisionMap offers the A3 family of large format digital mapping cameras designed to address specific needs within the geospatial mapping industry, together with “LightSpeed”, a matching fully automatic ground processing unit.
Acute3D is a technological software company created in 2011 by leveraging on 25 man-years of research at two major European research institutes. Acute3D develops breakthrough software solutions such as “Smart3DCapture”, automatically turning simple photographs into precise true-3D models. The software is used by leading companies such as Airbus, Autodesk, Blom, Nokia, Pasco, Pictometry, Rolta, etc. for 3D mapping, survey and scanning applications.
