SPH Engineering announces the release of the UgCS and its mobile companion’s UgCS for DJI update perfecting user experience and features for professional UAV survey mission planning. Along with the update, the UgCS Mapper (beta) is made available – a geo-referenced image processing desktop software, to create preliminary orthophoto map in-field, requiring no internet connection.
The double grid option is added for Area scan and Photogrammetry tool, to enable more precise aerial data acquiring. When a new Photogrammetry area is being added to the survey mission, by default the action Camera by time (with auto flag) is added.
For more comfortable mission planning features like the option to move and rotate route, manage common actions for selected segments and displaying of calculated path leg length on cursor-hover, polygon side length and calculated area size is displayed.
“Data import, flight planning and control are features that characterise UgCS. Adding the desktop geo-referenced image processing software UgCS Mapper to our portfolio brings UgCS one step closer to a complete ground control and mapping platform for UAV professionals. For our customers UgCS Mapper will provide significant insight to acquired data quality on site – this will save time and ensure better result – a PRO solution for PRO’s!”, said Janis Kuze, Sales Director at SPH Engineering.
While in beta UgCS Mapper is available for all users, after official release it will be a part of UgCS PRO and UgCS ENTERPRISE package.
