Western Data Systems Spatial Imaging products provide solutions for the collection, processing and analysis of geo-referenced images and point clouds. By combing scanners, aerial and land-mobile sensor systems with digital photogrammetry, terrain modeling, image analysis, change detection and feature extraction office software, Western Data Systems provides complete solutions for all your geospatial needs.
eCognition® software is designed to improve, accelerate and automate the interpretation of images and geospatial data for environmental monitoring, resource development, infrastructure management and global security. eCognition imports a variety of geospatial data, such as raster images, LiDAR point clouds, GIS vectors, radar and even hyperspectral data, fusing them together into a rich stack of geodata for analysis. Analysis logic is structured into series of steps to create a computer-based representation of an expert’s geospatial interpretation process. eCognition then combines the analysis logic with scalable computing power to identify changes over time or features on the earth’s surface across very large sets of data.
The Trimble scanners in conjunction with the Trimble controller software offers users a flexible 3D imaging solution by providing the ability to change the size of the image grid. This creates a low or high resolution dataset. Flexibility like this is necessary to adapt to a variety of projects such as a congested industrial environment, a reverse engineering project, verifying dimensional control or to control construction accuracy.
Trimble mobile spatial imaging systems combine imaging and laser scanning capabilities to measure objects in 3D to produce 3D and 4D data sets for spatial imaging projects. Mobile spatial imaging systems expands the scope of services that surveyors, engineers, mapping and geospatial professionals can offer to enhance their business. The systems are ideal for as-built modeling, inventory, inspection, encroachment analysis, and asset management for roadways, bridges, railways, utilities, and other infrastructure.
