Acquiring an Applanix system in 2001, the firm was one of the first in Africa to see the benefit of using inertial technology in conjunction with precision GPS to obtain more robust aerial triangulations and to reduce, or at times even eliminate, the requirements for ground control.
With the digital age comes a total dependence on software. One learns the hard way what works and what does not. The firm has in the past purchased and applied a variety of software packages including VirtuoZo, Socet Set, Inpho, Orthovista, Agisoft, PhotoMod and Photomodeler. All bulk processing is now done by our spin-off company, WGSAir. (Click here for their web site). Rob Wooding & Associates retains software for camera calibrations and licenses sufficient for quality control of any mapping project.
