The solution for city- and countrywide mapping from aerial imagery

SURE Aerial is specifically designed for large aerial image datasets – captured with large frame nadir cameras, oblique cameras or hybrid systems with additional LiDAR sensors. Without limitation in image resolution, it empowers the production of 3D Meshes, True Orthophotos, Point Clouds and Digital Surface Models on common workstation hardware or up to cluster environments. Simple to setup and to operate while being perfectly connected by interfaces such as various Aerotriangulation import options, shapefile definitions or output formats - compliant to mapping industry standards and ready for web streaming technologies.

Optimised for large datasets

Fully automatic workflow

Generate Tiled DSMs, True Orthophotos and Meshes completely automatically. No manual seam line editing or expert knowledge required to produce quality outputs. 

Region of interest definition

Process only what is important for your project without all the extras. Take control of your time and efficiency per project. Import 2D or 3D shapefiles for waterbodies, areas of interes and surface correction

Efficient visualization of large datasets

Benefit of an optimized level-of-detail and streaming formats for web-visualization (cesium, ESRI slpk, osgb, obj, collada). The free SURE Viewer is included with the upgradable SURE Editor.

Unlimited Scalability

Whether 2,000 or 20,000 high resolution images, SURE Aerial scales with you and your project needs. 

Cost efficient image acquisition and processing

Choose image acquisition that fits best for you. Acquire Oblique images, get high quality from Nadir flights or data provided by hybrid systems with additional LiDAR sensors. Experience highly efficient processing built for handling large datasets on your existing hardware. 

Colorized DSMs

Generate colorized DSMs to represent accurate height differentiation data.
