Orbit Softcopy

Reference and guides for Orbit's photogrammetry solution Orbit Softcopy version X.

  • Orbit Softcopy offers Stereo View & Edit integrated in OrbitGIS.

  • The stereoview starts from a processed stereoproject (EO-file, camera calibration report, and images):
    stereoproject coming from:
    1. low altitude aerial (e.g. Orbit UAS Mapping Software)
    2. high altitude aerial (e.g. Orbit Strabo Photogrammetry Software)
    3. terrestrial imagery (e.g. Orbit Strabo Photogrammetry Software).

  • The integrated editing tools of OrbitGIS making both GIS and Photogrammetry quite simple, intutitive and similar to operate. Registration of vector objects, adding construction points and lines, or editing created objects can be easilty done in 3D stereo.

  • Orbit Softcopy is operated with a standard system mouse or specialized 3D mouse to control position and function keys to register data. Orbit Stereo allows stereoviewing and editing in Anaglyph, StereoGraphics and Strabox mode. The Anaglyph mode runs on every desktop without hardware requirements: it only requires cyan-red colored glasses.

  • Orbit Strabo X, Orbit Softcopy, Orbit UAS Mapping, and Orbit StereoView are photogrammetric extensions to OrbitGIS. Open on the main toolbar 'extensions' and choose for Orbit Softcopy Photogrammetry Extension…
