DATA Processing

The engine behind most of the photogrammetry  software is “MicMac”, the photogrammetry software developed at the IGN (French National Geographic Institute) and ENSG (French national school for geographic sciences).


MicMac is commando driven and has no real customer friendly interfaces.Commercially available software applications are making the use of the software modules more understandable and customer friendly.

Are in use:

  • WebODM; (Open Drone Map), an open source application,
  • Agisoft Metashape,
  • ContextCapture of Bentley.


The main engines behind are the same, the differences are the settings and the customer interfaces
