Anchorage, AK — DAT/EM Systems International, a specialist in photogrammetric software, has announced version 7.1 of its products, including their Summit Evolution, Landscape, Capture, and MapEditor. According to the company, the new versions are a response to recent technological developments as well as growth within the geospatial industry, and most crucially, customer input.

In a release, DAT/EM touted highlights from the new software releases, including what they call the Multiple Project Solution, which combines different project types with any coordinate systems and displays them simultaneously in different viewports. Using this function, a user can view imagery from sources such as aerial, orthophoto, ADS, and satellite RPC at the same time.

Another highlight is the newly available oblique options, which are available for any imagery where omega and phi are greater than 15 degrees.

The company layed out the other main upgrades in a release:

  • Enhanced printing options, such as print preview, print in anaglyph, print with boundaries, print with full superimposition, virtually print to TIFF, and print to a higher resolution.
  • A Direct Linear Transform (DLT) model has been added to Summit close range projects. This model allows Summit to orient photos without a known camera calibration.
  • Named Image Adjustments is a new tool that saves image adjustment profiles for repeated use. It can also link to a Channel Map configuration.
  • Aerial projects can now define image scale, earth curvature correction, and refraction correction by a new Use heights method, which defines individual model scales and is used in steep terrain.
  • A second generation beta of the Global Mapper® Extension. The Extension connects Blue Marble Geographics® Global Mapper with any Summit Evolution edition (Professional, Feature Collection or Lite).
  • LandScape offers a new slider to adjust the intensity of color.
  • All DAT/EM products support new file formats, including LAZ format for both read and write operations, all LAS 1.4 for read only, and LAS 1.4 non-waveform formats for read and write.
