Quattro DigiCAM is part of the IGI DigiCAM range since 2008. With an overall resolution of up to 235 megapixels, the system offers high resolution. Being part of IGI's Modular System Concept, parts of the system can be used in different compatible systems such as DigiTHERM, LiteMapper, StreetMapper or RailMapper. As a unique feature, the system can be converted to a Quattro DigiCAM Oblique delivering high quality, 45° oblique to all four directions with up to 60 megapixels imagery.

 

Nadir & Oblique Imagery, perfectly suited for 3D Texturing:

Within a couple of hours the Quattro DigiCAM is converted to its oblique version. The superior result of Quattro DigiCAM nadir & oblique imagery using the automatic texture algorithm of German based company 3D Reality Maps is shown in the video below. Imagery is based on Aerowest flight over Brunswick, Germany with their Quattro DigiCAM.

Nadir & Oblique Imagery, perfectly suited for 3D Texturing:

Using the dense matching algorithm of ifp Uni-Stuttgart with both nadir and oblique imagery amazing results can be achieved. Please watch the result video using nadir & oblique imagery of Aerowest flight over Lünen, Germany as input for the dense matching algorithm.
