SOCET GXP v4.0

Image List provides slideshow capability in a SOCET GXP Multiport.

The Image List offers an efficient workflow for viewing a stack of images from the SOCET GXP Workspace Manager. Image List functionality makes it possible to cycle forward or reverse, or jump to any image in the stack. There are many uses for the Image List capability including assessing image quality, temporal analysis, and image exploitation.

Selecting an image from the Image List opens a new Multiport, providing access to all available exploitation functionality for an image in SOCET GXP, such as templates and annotations, mensuration, and feature extraction.

Using the SOCET GXP API Tester

Brian Roberts

Brian Roberts

SOCET GXP comes with an auxiliary program, the API Tester, to help SOCET GXP API developers interface with other applications.

Developers use the powerful API Tester to experiment with different API commands and options to discover how they function prior to coding. In addition to testing commands, the API Tester monitors API events in real time. This capability can greatly reduce the time it takes to debug complex event handling errors in client applications.

The API tester can be launched by either adding the executable, gxpapitest.exe, to the Workspace Manager as a custom menu item or from the command line with the command:

start_gxp.bat –exename gxpapitest.exe

Delivering ORIMA support files to SOCET SET v5.5 and v5.6

If ORIMA-SOCET SET release 10 or release 11 has been used to perform the aerotriangulation adjustment with SOCET SET, and the SOCET SET project files are to be used on another system, the “libSSFrameORIMA_pluginSM.dll” file also should be copied into the SOCET SET “…\lib\smplugins” directory on the target system. This plugin DLL is included with the ORIMA setup application and can be delivered with the ORIMA-created support files.

Using ADS imagery with SOCET SET

Before ADS imagery can be used with SOCET SET, it must be determined if the support files were created by the Leica GPro/XPro processing software, or if they were created through the SOCET SET image import process.

Open an ADS support file with a text editor and note if the “SENSOR_TYPE” is “ADS” or “ADS40.” Support files containing the BAE Systems “ADS40” sensor model can be used directly after updating a few directory path locations.

SOCET GXP v3.2 is now shipping!

SOCET GXP v3.2.0 is now available with groundbreaking updates to automate arduous photogrammetric routines and simplify image processing tasks. This release continues our fundamental goal of delivering ease-of-use, performance and accuracy in one product.

SOCET GXP v3.2 adds capabilities to transfer information from imagery into feature databases for convenient multi-user access, such as handling NULL values as attributes.

SOCET GXP v3.2 adds capabilities to transfer information from imagery into feature databases for convenient multi-user access, such as handling NULL values as attributes.

We are excited to move to a new level of support for SOCET SET workflows with the addition of Frame-Advanced sensor modeling, import and triangulation. SOCET GXP v3.2 also includes terrain registration, comparison and volumetrics that go well beyond the tools in SOCET SET. In addition, advanced hyperspectral and multispectral analytics build on v3.1.1 mid-range exploitation tools. New classification algorithms, spectral libraries and pixel thresholding offer real-time visualization and insight.

To complement SOCET GXP functionality, the video analysis tool has been redesigned, adopting the familiar look and feel of the Multiport Ribbon for improved usability. Video search and review controls provide slow-motion or frame-by-frame metadata analysis to track moving objects, and operators can log results from collaborative sessions for easy reference. Connectivity with SOCET GXP enables further analysis of video snapshots and advanced product generation.

To learn more, download the SOCET GXP v3.2 release enhancements brochure.

We have commenced SOCET GXP v3.2 product package shipments. Please be patient. We have implemented increased security measures for all software packages and shipments.
