Maximize your productivity with specialized features

The future of accuracy: AutoGCPs

The AutoGCPs feature automatically detects Ground Control Points (GCPs) in your project. A combination of machine learning and computer vision pinpoints the exact center of a GCP with pixel-level accuracy. AutoGCPs work with three types of target Haar patterns: square, diagonal and Aeropoints.

Sky and water segmentation removal

Reduce or completely eliminate noise created by sky and water segments with this new feature. Automatically remove the segments that introduce noise to the point cloud to get smoother, noise-free point clouds and meshes.

Disclaimer: water segmentation is beta feature

Removal of moving objects

With the moving object removal feature, you can automatically tidy your project by removing moving objects that clutter up your orthomosaics. Focus on the important areas and objects to get cleaner, more accurate representations of your project.

Multiple processing areas

Set up a field of focus to protect the privacy of the surrounding areas. Generate outputs reflecting just the target areas (of any shape and number). Apply the selected area to the point cloud, mesh, DSM, and orthomosaic to get more relevant results and eliminate unneeded areas
