Optelos launches new software tool to easily manage, analyze and share orthomosaic data


Optelos, an Austin-based drone data analysis company, announced the launch of FlyView OrthoCompare, a software tool that allows drone service providers to manage the size and variety of image files collected and provide significant orthomosaics to their customers.

David Tran, CEO of Optelos, said: “Customers have told us that one of their biggest challenges is to easily deliver large orthomosaic files to all of their customers and provide the ability to view and query the data. Additionally, many users wanted to be able to compare multiple orthomosaics over time to see changes and gain other insights. These challenges have diminished the value of the data and the overall end-user experience. »

Drone service providers capture hundreds and thousands of images and use processing software such as Pix4D and Drone Deploy to generate highly detailed georeferenced orthomosaic images. However, delivering these orthomosaics to end users and customers presents challenges. Datasets vary in size from hundreds of megabytes to several gigabytes and customers need specialized software tools that can be used and time consuming in order to visualize their orthomosaic datasets.

FlyView OrthoCompare solves the problems faced by drone operators to manage, analyze or share their data.

The tool is designed to simplify the process for users by allowing drone operators to overlay and compare high-resolution orthomosaics with a simple three-step process:

  1. Download GeoTIFF: Operators export their orthomosaics in GeoTIFF format to the Optelos Drone Work Advisor platform.
  2. To treat: Optelos processes the GeoTIFF in real time and operators can access the results in just a few minutes.
  3. View: Operators can view orthomosaics with geotagged images, overlay multiple orthomosaics via an opacity slider, and compare orthomosaics side-by-side to quickly gather insights

This addresses many of the challenges and bottlenecks that operators face.

The goal of Optelos OrthoCompare is to enable users and customers to quickly and easily gather, understand and share the information contained in their data.
