MosaicMill starts development of forest inventry methods with HS camera.
MosaicMill has started co-operation with Metsä Group, one of the biggest forest industriel groups, to develop forest inventories with UAV and hyperspectral camera.
Aim is to establish methods that enable inventory of forest properties without field measurements.
Press release by Metsä Group
District heating networks of lappeenranta and Imatra surveyed.
MosaicMill has carried out first district heating surveys with new technology in order to detect energy linkages.
Survey was carried out with Piper manned aircraft covering over 500 km of pipelines.
EnsoMOSAIC Agri updated
MosaicMill has released new version of EnsoMOSAIC Agri QGIS plugin. New version is applying
2 - 5 reflectance targets to correct non-linearity of the camera.
University of Helsinki, Finland acquires integrated Camflight UAS with Phoenix LiDAR.
University of Helsinki has purchased a multicopter based LiDAR mapping system from MosaicMIll Ltd.
The system will be used in wide range of research projects, where flying time endurance and multiple
sensor payloads are being required. The imaging platform is Camflight FX8, which is a heavy lifter UAS.
The primary mapping payload is Phoenix LiDAR Systems laser mapping system with a 42MP camera.
A hyperspectral sensor AISA Kestrel 10 from SPECIM Ltd will also being integrated with Camflight.
The RPAS will be delivered in March 2017 and it will be in operational service in summer.
EnsoMOSAIC Agri released
MosaicMill has further developed NDVI tools and new version is now EnsoMOSAIC Agri. This QGIS plugin calculates reflectance mosaics, true NDVIs and
prescription maps which can be used in most tractor systems to optimize fertilazation in precision agriculture.
Detailed workflow of the tools is shown in the following youtube videos:
EnsoMOSAIC NDVI cameras capture narrow bands
MosaicMill is applying new filter technology in NDVI camera range. Now NDVI cameras can be also capture narrow RED and NIR bands, which improves
accuracy of NDVI mapping.
EnsoMOSAIC Fusion will be launched in Intergeo
MosaicMill is launching all new EnsoMOSAIC Fusion software (version 8 in EnsoMOSAIC chain) in Intergeo, Hamburg. New fuctionality contains e.g oblique image processing,
state-of-the art point cloud quality and hyperspectral image processing. More details available in Products and downloads pages.
MosaicMill is reselling Terra - software
MosaicMill is reselling Terra software suite by Terrasolid, Finland. Terrasuite is complete, automatic package for Lidar or image-based point cloud
classification and vectorization. Most common application areas are powerline mapping, city mapping and forest inventories. Animation of image based results are available in youtube:
EnsoMOSAIC NDVI-tools released
MosaicMill has released NDVI-tools, combination of calibrated field reflectance plates and software tools to calculate reflectance and true NDVIs.
These tools enable
NDVI comparisons of different sites and times with high accuracy.
Detailed tutorial video of working steps is found in Youtube:
Reflectance and NDVI mosaic
Vectornav VN-200 GNSS/IMU is now integrated into EnsoMOSAIC flight hardware.
This enables accurate orientation of imaging sensors and thus improves mosaicking accuracy and processing speed.
