Spatial aerial triangulation

The functions of the aerial triangulation in PHOTOMOD are required to accurately calculate the orientation parameters of images and provide a high geometrical accuracy of the output products: DEM, orthomosaics, digital maps. Arial triangulation results (orientation parameters) are calculated automatically, and the system provides a full range of tools for accuracy evaluation, visual control and errors analysis.

Digital terrain models

PHOTOMOD allows the user to automatically create digital elevation models and digital surface models from aerial and satellite images. The digital terrain model created in PHOTOMOD ensures high quality of orthomosaic, and also serves as a source of detailed information about terrain relief and is used to solve analytical tasks.

2D and 3D-vectorization

The PHOTOMOD system supplies the user with a full set of tools for 2D and 3D-vectorization and editing of drawn terrain objects. You may use vectorized objects as a topographic basis of cartographic products or input them as initial data to create mathematic (geometric) model scene during terrain 3D modeling.

Orthorectification and mosaic creation

During mosaic creation using PHOTOMOD tools you can build continuous, color balanced and brightness homogenous orthomosaic with high accuracy from separate images. Geometric and photometric distortions are adjusted during the creation operation. Output product (orthomosaic) could be presented as a single frame or a set of sheets in specified cartographic projection with marginalia.


The PHOTOMOD software package includes features for creation of 3D models using stereovectorization results. The resulting model, due to the high quality metric may be used for solving applied analytical problems. And thanks to the visual appeal and clarity they may be useful when creating a vivid and compelling multimedia presentations and videos.

PHOTOMOD is a modular system. This allows users to obtain maximum benefit from its high level of flexibility. Each module performs specific operations during a certain stage of processing. Configure for optimal system production. Buy only the modules you need for your particular workflow. Easy operation. User interface of each module is optimized for module functions. Still, general interface elements remain uniform throughout the system.

The fundamental concept of PHOTOMOD is to enable projectwork through a series of well-defined steps (data preparation, block adjustment, processing) and provide the support of a flexible set of tools at every stage.

The PHOTOMOD System includes its main operating shell, PHOTOMOD Core, and 10 other modules:

  • PHOTOMOD Core — main system shell 
    Main system shell is used to initiate PHOTOMOD modules, manage projects, load images, enter camera parameters, view/import/export DTM, vectors, and triangulation points, create block layouts based on various source datasets, mono-vectorization, operate objects in 3D window, create reports, etc.

  • PHOTOMOD AT — aerial triangulation measurements
    Aerial triangulation data collection includes interior/relative orientation and ground control points measurement. Fully automatic tie points measurement algorithm with a comprehensive set of accuracy control tools is available. Almost no manual tie points editing is needed following the AT automatic procedure.

  • PHOTOMOD SolverA — block adjustment for central projection images
  • PHOTOMOD SolverS — block adjustment for satellite scanner images
    SolverA and SolverS modules are used for block adjustment of central projection and scanner satellite images, respectively. Sophisticated adjustment and error detection algorithms ensure successful aerial triangulation and highly accurate DTM, orthomosaic and vector map output. PAT-B format import/export of aerial triangulation results allows PHOTOMOD software to easily integrate with other systems.

  • PHOTOMOD DTM — DTM & DEM creation
    The module provides a set of tools for creating DTMs. It produces Triangulated Irregular Network (TIN) and Digital Elevation Model (DEM). The utilities allow detailed work with pickets and contour lines, include automatic DTM creation algorithms, rebuild TIN and contour lines “on-the-fly,” contain a number of powerful DTM filters and manual editing tools. Final DTM can be viewed and analyzed in a special 3D window.

  • PHOTOMOD dDSM — dense DSM generation algorithm
    PHOTOMOD dDSM enables to build dense digital surface models with a cell size corresponding to 1 pixel of image (Semi-Global Matching (SGM) method.).

  • PHOTOMOD StereoDraw — 3D feature extraction in stereo-mode and 3D modeling
    This module is used for 3D feature extraction. StereoDraw contains a number of useful features: automatic terrain following, fix cursor Z-coordinate, snap to 2D and 3D vector elements, right angle plotting of line segments, combine vector objects by creating common parts, creation buffer zones, and more. Classifier table attributes can be assigned to vector objects. Import/export is supported for a number of popular data formats. Additionally, the module includes a 3D modeling program used before exporting objects to DXF format.

  • PHOTOMOD Mosaic — orthomosaicking
    Mosaic module is used for orthorectification and mosaicking of aerial or satellite images. The module utilizes either terrain models from the PHOTOMOD DTM module or DEM imported from popular formats. Easy-to-use cutline editor outlines image fragments to be placed into mosaic. Color balancing and seam feathering algorithms provide high radiometric quality of the created mosaic. PHOTOMOD Mosaic automatically controls orthomosaic accuracy through the use of triangulation points. The output orthomosaic can be saved into GeoTIFF format or georeferenced by text files acceptable to MapInfo and ArcINFO. The splitting of orthomosaics into map sheets is also supported.

  • PHOTOMOD StereoMeasure — forest valuation
    PHOTOMOD StereoMeasure — a toolset for forest valuation: stereointerpretation and stereomeasurement of forest’s characteristics, as well as stereovectorization of forest stands based on remote sensing data. Existing PHOTOMOD projects and pairs of georeferenced orthorectified images (aerial and pushbroom scanner ones), having a mutual overlap are the input data for StereoMeasure module.

  • PHOTOMOD ScanCorrect — geometric calibration of desktop publishing scanners
    This stand-alone module is designed for geometric calibration of desktop publishing (DTP) scanners. Through its enhanced scanner calibration procedure, the program enables to use of inexpensive scanners in precise digital photogrammetry applications. Scanned images are geometrically corrected in contradiction to a reference template image (a grid of crosses superimposed on the working image) scanned by the same scanner. Distortion caused by low-cost scanner optics and mechanics are removed in this process and virtually error-free images are produced.
CPU Intel Core i7
Memory (RAM) 32 ГБ (min 2 ГБ)
Graphics card Recomended Nvidia Quadro T1000.
Due to Windows 10 updates drivers of outdated video cards Nvidia Quadro are not supported anymore. Outdated video card series are those that are not produced any longer, such as Quadro FX, Quadro K, Quadro M and Quadro fr om 410 to 6000 (without letters). The main disadvantage of those video cards is that they do not have the page-flipping stereo regime in the PHOTOMOD programme. Some cards of these series still have the stereo mode available for PHOTOMOD software, however it is likely to become unavailable after Windows 10 updates. In order to avoid problems while in the stereo regime, we recommend using video cards of Quadro T, Quadro P and Quadro RTX series. No issues have been detected while in the stereo regime for any video cards in case of using Windows 7. 
Display Professional stereomonitors
Operating system Microsoft Windows 8.1, 10 x64

USB port should be available for hard lock key (for local PHOTOMOD version), or network connection to a server wh ere the key is installed if network PHOTOMOD version is being used.
