By Michael Gruber A, Martin Ponticelli A, Stefan Bernögger A and Franz Leberl B

Abstract

In this contribution we show details about the large format digital aerial camera system UltraCamX. The sensor was introduced into the market in 2006. It is currently the largest digital frame camera for photogrammetric applications. The system consists of several hardware component as well as software to operate the camera during the flight mission and to process image data after the photo flight. UltraCamX is manufactured by Vexcel Imaging GmbH, Graz, Austria. This company is 100 % owned by Microsoft Corp. since May 2006 and contributes to the Virtual Earth initiative of Microsoft. Within this huge project high quality aerial images are used to digitally reconstruct urban areas in an automated processing chain. We show details about the camera system and the newest results from the urban modeling project
