Why PurVIEW:

1. Seamlessly Integrated
2. No CAD, no translation, no retrograde
3. Geodatabase-direct editing/mapping
monitor dot pitch x view scale.
  • In Virtual-Z mode:
    Depends on DEM Z accuracy,
    e.g., IfSAR RADAR DEM at ±1m.
  • In manual mode:
    X/Y accuracy x f/b ratio.
Camera lens focal length (f) to image base (b) ratio is identical to the flying height (H) to air base (B) ratio and ideally as small as possible.

For example:
If a 152mm lens is used and the
X/Y accuracy is 0.6m, then
Z accuracy = 0.6m x 1.65 = 1m.
Source Data Specifications
Information on Ground Sampling Distance (GSD), DEM, scale and mapping accuracy.

23 x 23cm survey cameras.

Image base is 92mm at 60%
forward overlap, with standard
lens focal length of 152mm:
f/b = 1.65

New digital frame cameras:

The two available smaller
image formats result in f/b ratio
of 3.13 and 3.70, less than
ideal without Virtual-Z.

Digital aerial scanners:

A combined forward/backward
looking angle of 42 ° results in a
f/b equivalence of ~1.3 with
better Z accuracy.
