The Trimble DSS aerial imaging solution was
designed to produce orthomaps to
increase productivity, achieving a
1:3 ratio of flying time vs. processing time
without compromising accuracy.
NOAA NGS Division uses the DSS for the
Coastal Mapping Program.

Productive Photogrammetric Mapping.
A mission could be flown one day, and the map could
be delivered the
direct georeferencing reduces or
eliminates the hassle of ground control points
and Aerial triangulation.
