1 IMAGE Dense DSMs from Stereo Imagery Dr. Philippe Simard President SimActive Inc.

2 About SimActive  Founded in 2003, SimActive is the developer of Correlator3D™ software, a patented end-to-end photogrammetry solution  SimActive has been selling Correlator3D™ to leading mapping firms and government organizations around the world  Correlator3D™ is the fastest commercial software to perform DSM generation DSMDTMMosaic3D Features

4 DSM Generation  A Digital Surface Model (DSM) is a representation of ground topography  Main Processing Steps:  1. Correlation  2. Triangulation  Bottom-up approach What is it? DSM Example

5 TriangulationCorrelation Focal point Image 1Image 2 Epipolar Traditional approach: How does it work? DSM Generation

6 DSM What is it?  A dense DSM has a grid post spacing approaching the ground sampling distance (GSD) of the input imagery Dense DSM Generation SimActive has just released its next generation DSM engine capable of producing dense DSMs Dense DSM

7 Challenges 1. Correlation 2. Sensitivity 3. Density  Process more difficult  Radiometry differences between images  Camera calibration  Exterior orientation  More points leads to longer processing time For dense DEM generation

8  Bottom-Up  Derive solution  Feature-Based  High density in some areas only  CPU  Few cores Comparison Traditional  Top-Down  Test solutions  Grid-Based  High density in all areas  GPU  Hundreds of cores SimActive

9 Focal point Image 1Image 2 Top-Down Idea: test solutions and check whether they solve the correlation problem

10 Grid-Based Grid-based DEM is dense everywhere  No interpolation  Correlation performed on all points in the grid  Adjacent solutions assist each other

11 GPU Possible Solutions Processing Results P 11 P P n1 P 12 P P n2... P 1n... P 2n...P nn GPU Cores These solutions are processed by the GPU simultaneously When a match is found, the problem is solved 1 23 Many possible solutions are prepared to be tested 1 2 3

12 Results Resolution: 25 cm Accuracy: 5 cm Resolution: 15 cm Accuracy: 5 cm Dense DSM DSM

13 Benefits  World’s fastest commercially available DSM engine  Direct DSM result removing the need to convert from a point cloud  More points in low texture areas  DSM precision is consistent and homogeneous Dense DSM

14 Applications
