ERDAS announces a new suite of extensions that operate with Stereo Analyst® for ArcGIS, available for ArcGIS 9.3. These extensions form a production set of tools aimed at assisted feature collection and terrain editing. Recently, ERDAS also announced a new release of Stereo Analyst for ArcGIS.
Expanding its ArcGIS extensions offering, ERDAS is introducing FeatureAssist for ArcGIS and ERDAS Terrain Editor for ArcGIS. FeatureAssist for ArcGIS includes a suite of templates to collect rooftops of varying complexity in an ESRI Multipatch format. A multipatch shapefile allows a 3D model to be constructed and optionally textured for realistic scene generation. ERDAS Terrain Editor for ArcGIS provides point, breakline and area tools to edit geodatabase terrains.
With Stereo Analyst for ArcGIS, users can create and revise a comprehensive database of feature data. Stereo visualization improves the interpretation of images and allows more precise collection, leading to greater accuracy in the resulting layers.
“We are excited to release these two new extensions for Stereo Analyst for ArcGIS,” said Mladen Stojic, Senior Vice President, Product Management and Marketing, ERDAS. “ERDAS continues to be committed to providing the most advanced solutions for image processing and feature collection for users on the ArcGIS platform.”
FeatureAssist for ArcGIS and ERDAS Terrain Editor for ArcGIS are now available for download on the ERDAS website. For more information about ERDAS, please call +1 770 776 3400, toll free +1 877 GO ERDAS, or visit www.erdas.com.
