TerraSim, Inc. at ASPRS 2009 Meeting

March 5, 2009

Pittsburgh, PA - TerraSim, Inc. will be demonstrating its TerraTools® 3D geospatial visualization software product line at the 2009 American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) meeting in Baltimore, Maryland March 8-13, 2009 at Booth #109.

A sustaining member of ASPRS, TerraSim will be performing product demonstrations of its suite of source data preparation tools, including RoadMAP v1.0, an advanced road network extraction system, and DEMTools 1.1, an extension to ESRI ArcGIS. TerraSim will also feature its plug-in to BAE Systems' SOCET SET photogrammetric system supporting rapid generation of 3D visualizations, suitable for export to Google Earth and other real time viewers. All of these products are components of TerraSim's focus as the technology leader to support modeling of complex urban environments for the GIS and modeling and simulation community.

TerraSim will also feature previews of TerraTools® 4.0, the upcoming release of its efficient geospatial database construction product line. TerraTools rapidly constructs large area visualizations using commercial GIS, DoD source data, imagery, and CAD models in a Windows environment. TerraTools natively supports multi-threaded database processing and allows up to eight-fold parallelism with a dual/multi-core processor on a Windows XP/Vista workstation using a single TerraTools license. The highlights of these demonstrations will be TerraTools Urban Details™ processing technology, a 3D Points of Interest (POI) visualization automatically constructed using NAVTEQ NAVSTREETS data, and a new TerraTools plug-in that exports correlated geospatial databases to Virtual Battlespace 2 (VBS2).

During the ASPRS technical paper sessions, Wilson Harvey, Senior Computer Vision Scientist and Product Manager for RoadMAP, will describe TerraSim's current work on extracting road features from LIDAR data. The paper, entitled “Improving the Automation of Extracting Road Networks from Lidar and Panchromatic/Multi-spectral Imagery," will be presented at the Feature Extraction VII session on Thurday, March 12, at 3:30 PM.
