Aplitop TcpStereo allows stereoplotting in CAD platform using aerial photographs with previously defined orientations. It is especially useful for photogrammetric surveys with drones and can be used by public administration and companies specialized in mining, earthworks, hydrology, environment, urban planning and many more.
It is compatible with any graphic card with OpenGL 2.0 (or higher) and anaglyph glasses, NVidia Quadro graphic cards and active glasses systems (such as the one from Volfoni) or professional systems based on dual displays.
Basic input data are the folder with the flight images and the external orientation file, which could be imported from Pix4D or Agisoft Metashape.
Work with digital or analog pictures. For digital pictures, the camera parameters and flight height are automatically obtained from metadata. Analogue pictures require to specify camera and flight data, such as focal distance, main point and average flight and terrain height.
During project definition, images are converted to pyramidal format in order to optimize display performance. Images are organized in models, strips and block.
Models can be viewed in stereoscopic mode with low cost systems based on emitters and active glasses, or systems with two displays, mirror glass and polarized glasses. You can also display with anaglyph glasses in pseudo-stereo mode (overlapped images) in any computer, and you can print and send these images by email.
The program can work with multiple stereoscopic modelsm, switching automatically from one model to another by following cursor movements through terrain. It is also possible to know the real coordinates of the terrain and have the height, measure 2D and 3D distances, slopes and elevation differences, perimeters and areas.
CAD Drawing and Editing
TcpStereo can synchronize with different CAD versions, so that a drawing can be loaded and show in stereoscopic mode selected layers, while keeping the center of frame and drawing automatically. Also, you can draw point and polylines with constant or variable height in the same coordinate system.
If you integrate with TcpMTD, the digital terrain model can be generated as well as creating contours, get profiles, cross sections etc.
