SOCET SET® v5.5

Digital mapping software used for precision photogrammetry and geospatial analysis. Finished products include high-resolution digital terrain and surface models, image maps, 3-D visualizations, and GIS databases.

SOCET SET® v5.5 offers new functionality to increase data sharing, enhancements for the frame sensor model, additional satellite sensors, and new terrain tools.

Enhancements to the frame sensor model allow exterior orientation data from third-party triangulation packages to be imported into non-local space rectangular (LSR) coordinate systems. The new frame sensor model includes 43 parameters for self-calibration and expanded exterior orientation. Frame import supports the new Applanix® DSS 439 medium format, 30-megapixel, 6.8 μm pixels digital frame camera. New satellite sensor models include ALOS AVNIR, ALOS PALSAR, COSMO-SkyMed, EROS-B, FORMOSAT-2, RADARSAT-2, and TerraSAR-X.

BAE Systems continues to advance its Next-Generation Automatic Terrain Extraction (NGATE) functionality to provide simultaneous bare-earth and reflected surface model generation. In addition, Interactive Terrain Edit (ITE) tools have been enhanced for bare-earth product generation from reflected surface models. The new release supports SOCET GXP® v3.1, Microsoft® Visual Studio 9 (2008), and the Microsoft Vista operating system.
