Photogrammetry
LPS
LPS is a powerful photogrammetry system available in a user-friendly environment that guarantees results even
for photogrammetry novices. LPS provides tools for delivering full analytical triangulation, digital terrain model
generation, orthophoto production, mosaicking, and 3D feature extraction. Automating precision measurement
and including flexible operations such as terrain editing and feature extraction, LPS increases productivity while
ensuring high accuracy. With its tight integration with ERDAS IMAGINE
®
, LPS is the ideal photogrammetric
package for projects involving varied types of data and further processing and analysis of airborne and satellite
imagery.

New Features for 2013
￿
Faster, Easier Access to All LPS Tools and Features
All LPS tools and features are now presented within the ERDAS IMAGINE ribbon, with tighter integration
with the ERDAS IMAGINE tools. This simplifies workflows for project photogrammetry users who work
with smaller quantities of raw imagery, use varied types of data (such as raster, vector, GIS, LiDAR,
georeferenced tables), and who will likely perform further processing, such as change detection or image
classification.
￿
Enhanced Terrain Handling
The commonly used LTF terrain file format can now store more points. In addition, there are now
overviews for an LTF file, enabling faster handling of large LTF files.
￿
Expanded Sensor Support
Support for additional sensors, including the VisionMap A3 Super Large Format (SLF) Model, the
Pleiades Rational Polynomial Coefficients (RPC) Model, and the DEIMOS RPC Model. These sensor
models are also available throughout
ERDAS IMAGINE

ImageStation
®

The ImageStation
®
software suite enables digital photogrammetry workflows, including project creation,
orientation and triangulation, 3D feature collection and editing, digital terrain model (DTM) collection and editing,
and orthophoto production using aerial and satellite imagery. ImageStation is specially designed for high-volume
commercial photogrammetry and production mapping customers who need to move large quantities of raw spatial
information to an actionable or exploitable format.

New Features for 2013
￿
Dense Terrain Surface Extraction from Leica RCD30 and Z/I DMC imagery
ImageStation Automatic Elevations – Extended (ISAE-Ext) is now available to generate dense point
clouds using pixel correlation on stereo imagery from Leica RCD30 and Z\I DMC sensors. It uses a Semi-
Global Matching (SGM) algorithm and also RGB encodes the point cloud output for image-like quality.
￿
Distributable Processing in ImageStation Automatic Elevations
ImageStation Automatic Elevations (the automatic terrain extraction module of ImageStation) can now
use Condor to distribute large tasks among multiple computers and cores, significantly reducing
processing time.
￿
Enhanced Support for Ingesting Surfaces (More Formats, Better Performance)
ImageStation now includes native support for additional terrain formats (ArcGrid, ADF, XYZ). In addition,
performance is better when rendering terrain or probing to determine the z-value at given x and y
coordinates.
￿
Access to Advanced Aerial Triangulation and Visual Analysis Tools in ORIMA
You can now launch ORIMA from the interface of ImageStation Automatic Triangulation. This provides
easy access to ORIMA’s advanced aerial triangulation and visual analysis tools.

modeling.

New Features for 2013
￿
New Tools and Technology for Handling Point Clouds
ERDAS IMAGINE 2013 enables you to more thoroughly visualize, analyze, and manage your point
clouds. New viewing technology allows you to simultaneously view point clouds in 2D, 3D and as a user-
specified profile that can reveal cross sections of the point cloud. There are also tools to classify, subset
and filter your point data, as well as RGB encode it (use an orthophoto of the same area to add color to
the points).
￿
Next-Generation Spatial Modeler

The next-generation spatial modeler features an all-new, modern interface and provides real-time preview
of results. In addition to the ERDAS IMAGINE raster operators, the new spatial modeler incorporates
GeoMedia vector and grid operators to greatly extend the problem-solving capability. Python scripting

resources. Many of the radar tools are now presented using a ribbon interface for faster and easier
access. Other features include real-time ship tracking with Automatic Identification System (AIS) feeds,
on-the-fly georeferencing, and quick and easy detection of floods or spills
￿
Better Results for Object-based Feature Extraction

IMAGINE Objective uses a new segmentation algorithm, FLS, and provides you with the ability to fine-
tune the creation of segments based on shape, size, texture, and spectral value.
￿
Additional Indices and a Streamlined Interface for Working with Indices

ERDAS IMAGINE 2013 includes more than 35 of the most commonly used indices (band algebra
formulas that enable easier information extraction from imagery), and the interface used to work with
indices is now streamlined. The indices work with all of the sensor models supported by ERDAS
IMAGINE, and the indices tool is connected to the spatial modeler for easy editing.
