Airbus Defence and Space’s Street FactoryTM: ready-to-use 3D data

Following in the footsteps of Space FactoryTM and Sky FactoryTM, Airbus Defence and Space is now offering customers Street FactoryTM. A system which has been up and running for the last few months, it provides access to textured 3D urban models with astonishing precision and realism.

See for yourself with this video showing Airbus Defence and Space’s site in Toulouse, made using images acquired by aerial cameras on 28 June 2012.

Street FactoryTM is a 3D mapping system, developed by Airbus Defence and Space. Just a few hours after acquiring data from oblique aerial or terrestrial cameras, an extremely realistic full 3D model, with a high degree of geometric precision, can be produced

Urban planning, risk management, defence and telecommunications are just a few examples of applications requiring ready-to-use 3D data.
