hotogrammetric vector collection and editing package

A powerful photogrammetric vector collection and editing package with Digital Terrain Modeling and image display capability

The program design and implementation is the result of over twenty years of software development experience in the mapping industry.  Photogrammetry today requires the mapping professional to deliver vector, image and DTM data as digital products. VrOne addresses many of the problems encountered in handling the collection, editing and plotting of vector, image and DTM data. 

A highly efficient, stand-alone, 3D graphic system designed for photogrammetry. Years of software development and support in the mapping production environment have generated the most practical mapping tool available today.   VrOne is an easy-to-learn system that offers fast data acquisition, easy editing, powerful data storage and specialized mapping applications.

Versatile - VrOne excels as a 3D data collection system on stereo plotters. Its versatility makes it equally as powerful as a stand-alone edit station.

Vector Collection - Interactive, easy to use mapping applications with Function Keys and Macros improve data collection speed. Innovative features such as Application Overlaying allow data to be collected in regions instead of by feature type.

Stereo Softcopy Support - When running the optional add-on softcopy VrTwo, all the power and flexibility of VrOne is available as a single, tightly integrated package.

Vector Editing - Interactive, intuitive editing functions for many editing situations are available. Unattended batch applications make the global changing and editing of map data easy. Vector collection and editing may be performed over images using them as backdrop and for reference.

DTM - The DTM engine is on-line and may be run at any time. Application Overlaying allows the engine to be run while a data collection application is running. Draping against the DTM surface may be used for quality control, DEM generation, feature extrusion and ground tracking.

Data Storage - Up to 2000 vector and image files may be opened at one time. The VrOne data base is a true 3 dimensional, real world coordinate system. Non-graphic data types such as Feature Code extend data classification. 32,001 data layers and an unlimited file size allow collection and editing of massive amounts of map data.

Application Overlaying - Multiple applications may be overlaid allowing the operator to collect data in the order it presents itself instead of feature type by feature type. This allows operators to collect data the way they think instead of the way most computer software wants them to think.  Application Overlaying is one of the new, innovative features of the Vr Mapping Software.

Powerful, Flexible with Many Extras - VrOne includes many mapping objects that are considered extras.  The standard version of VrOne comes with Interactive collection and editing, batch processing, DTM support and 3D draping, plotting and many translators.  One of the best features of VrOne is it's value.
