ERDAS Announces a Free Webinar—New Year, New Tools…Turn up Your Stereo (Feature Collection)

Norcross, GA – ERDAS announces New Year, New Tools – Turn up Your Stereo (Feature Collection), a free webinar on January 6, 2009 at 11 a.m. EST.

Stereo visualization improves the interpretation of images and promotes more precise collection, leading to greater accuracy in resulting layers. This webinar includes interactive demos, introducing a new suite of tools for the ArcGIS 9.3 platform. These tools enable users to quickly collect features from stereo images to create maps.

FeatureAssist for ArcGIS includes a suite of templates to collect rooftops of varying complexity in an ESRI Multipatch format. A multipatch shapefile allows a 3D model to be constructed and optionally textured for realistic scene generation. ERDAS Terrain Editor for ArcGIS provides point, breakline and area tools to edit geodatabase terrains. These new tools are add-ons to Stereo Analyst™ for ArcGIS.

Each month, ERDAS is offering at least two different webinar topics. In addition to a live presentation and demonstration, each webinar also includes the opportunity for customers to interact directly with the presenters. Scheduled to last forty-five minutes, each webinar will include approximately thirty minutes of presented material and fifteen minutes for Q&A.
