Key Features

  • Supports monochromatic, panchromatic, three- and multi-channel multispectral imagery.
  • Supports scanned aerial film, matrix and push-broom digital airborne cameras, small- and medium-format metric cameras, close-range imagers, orthophotos, RPC satellites, LiDAR, UAS imagery and synthetic aperture radar.
  • Imports third-party softcopy and pre-processed UAS projects, aerotriangulation results and other orientation files for quick setup.
  • Full range of manual and automatic image orientation capabilities.
  • Digitizes 3D vectors directly into AutoCAD, MicroStation, ArcGIS or Global Mapper using DAT/EM’s Capture interface.
  • Robust and easy-to-use interface for maximum productivity.
  • Bird’s-eye, close-up, project overview, 3D vector split window and multiple viewports offer a variety of visualization and feedback tools.
  • Ability to apply coordinate transformation.
  • Unlimited zoom levels, fast pan and automatic loading of adjacent stereo models with DAT/EM SuperImposition of CAD and GIS vectors over the image view.
  • DAT/EM Ortho+Mosaic module for easy and precise creation of orthomosaics.
  • Terrain Visualizer tool for dynamic, real-time preview of contours while DTM and breakline objects are created and edited.
  • Contour Creator™ for creating and writing the finished contours to the CAD file.
  • Interface to the DAT/EM-PCI ProPack to allow use of PCI Geomatica GDB data. (Requires PCI license)
  • Airfield3D™ standards-compliant airspace obstruction mapping tool.
