VAM | Release 2.3.2
New viewer technologies New viewer technology for ultra smooth viewer operation also on touch devices and faster 360 photogrammetry measurements. Statistics and audit tool in VAM2TK The VAM2 toolkit now lets you monitor the actions usage of your VAM2 installation and visualise these results for easy interpretation.
Stereo-Civetta | Test run in Saudi Arabia
The original Civetta is fast. But working in sandy, dusty conditions with high temperatures puts people and hardware to test. Thats why we made it faster and more robust to withstand the harshest enviroments. To bring 360° photogrammetry to the next level, the prototype of a Stereo Civetta proofed to be about three times faster on location with a bonus on ease of operation and automated image pair sorting in VAM2. Stereo Civetta is ready for pre-orders.
