Pixels to Points with Trimble's V10 Imaging Rover

When you hear the word photogrammetry most of us think about airborne images. We want to change your thinking a bit and insert the word "terrestrial" in front of photogrammetry. Terrestrial photogrammetry is an old principle that a guy by the name of Leonardo came up with in the 1400's. Mr. Da Vinci didn't have the luxury of a computer, yet he figured out how to merge two equal distant objects together and create a measurable image.
Trimble's V10 Imaging Rover has taken this principle into the 21st century and we are now able to collect, capture & process geo-referenced images and use them to create accurate points from digital images. For the 1st time we can add context to our data. By context we mean that instead of simply geo-referencing a feature we can now take surrounding objects in a photograph and put them into relationship or context by creating additional points from the imagery. Trimble's V10 Imaging Rover precisely captures 360-deg. digital panoramas used to visually document and measure the surrounding environment. We would like to introduce to you, in a short power point presentation the V10 Imaging Rover and how it can change the way you think about digital imagery, use data in a different way and do presentations that will impress your clients
