GeoCue Product Family

The GeoCue® product family, from GeoCue Group, comprises an integrated set of technologies for managing and monitoring geospatial production workflows. GeoCue is a platform technology, enabling end-users to extend and customize geospatial workflows.

Product Listing
Production Management Platform
GeoCue Client: GeoCue Client provides the standard production user’s interface to the GeoCue production management system.
GeoCue Server: GeoCue Server is the nucleus of a GeoCue production management system.
GeoCue Server - Professional: Extends GeoCue Server with support for any number of floating GeoCue Client licenses and support for GeoCue Federator.
GeoCue Server - Departmental - Extends GeoCue Server - Professional with support for GeoCue's Command Dispatch System (CDS).
GeoCue Federator: Links (federates) certain aspects of GeoCue Servers (Departmental or Professional). It is a required component for using Project Dashboard.
Project Management
GeoCue Project Administrator: Provides access to the detailed project management fields (Earned Value Management, EVM) that are automatially captured by GeoCue Client/Server.
GeoCue Project Dashboard: Provides a synoptic view of the status of multiple active projects from a web interface.
GeoCue Distributed Project Management System (DPMS): Facilitates tracking and reporting on the activities of disconnected production hubs.
CuePacs
We package our application specific workflow components into collections of executable programs and database definitions called CuePacs. When installed in a GeoCue constellation, these CuePacs provide workflow tools and components that realize specific production flows.
LIDAR 1 CuePac
Enables LIDAR processing in GeoCue by providing LIDAR processing specific functions such as:
  • Importing LIDAR source flight lines or data tiles
  • “Segmenting” LIDAR data into manageable tiles or re-segmenting existing tile layouts.
  • Reprojection of LIDAR data (horizontal and vertical) including ellipsoid to/from geoid and Mean High Water (USA)
  • Generating analysis views such as dZ orthos for relative vertical accuracy assessment
  • Z probing for absolute vertical accuracy assessment
  • Invocation of editing tools from the GeoCue Map View to control access and record production histories
  • Distributed processing of TerraScan Macros for high throughput LIDAR data classification
  • Generation of synthetic LIDAR stereo for LIDARgrammetry breakline collection (requires a stereo workstation; DAT/EM, Intergraph or BAE)
  • Many other LIDAR specific functions
Mobile Mapping System CuePac
The Mobile Mapping System (MMS) CuePac augments the LIDAR 1 CuePac, adding functions specific to mobile scanning. Features include:
  • Import of data takes from multi-sensor laser scanners (MMS’s typically has two simultaneously operating scanners)
  • Creating of Terrasolid compatible trajectories from the Applanix SBET and accuracy files
  • Import of MMS camera stations with error reporting
  • Display of camera images using the integrated GeoCue RasterVue window
DEM CuePac
This module is primarily used to convert LIDAR elevation data into a format useable by orthorectification packages. Functions include:
  • Import LAS “tiles” including filtering by LAS attribute
  • Import gridded or ASCII elevation data sources
  • Reprojection of elevation data (horizontal and vertical) including ellipsoid to/from geoid
  • Merge data
  • Extract arbitrary areas
  • Define elevation output tiles
  • Generate and output elevation grids (via surface TIN interpolation), including GeoTIFF
  • Generate Intergraph format DTM (version 7.0)
Raster Tools CuePac
The Raster Tools CuePac contains a number of tools that are useful in image Quality Check and image data packaging:
  • Photoshop driver for GeoCue including bi-directional annotation ability (between GeoCue and Photoshop with export to Shape)
  • Repackaging tool to allow regridding image data to different grid layouts including image reprojection.
DMC PPS CuePac
The Digital Mapping Camera (DMC) PPS CuePac provides a workflow for managing the Post-Processing workflow for the Intergraph (Z/I Imaging) DMC. This CuePac provides functions to:
  • Import Intergraph ImageStation Photogrammetric Manager (ISPM) projects with graphical display in the GeoCue Map View
  • Create and export ad hoc ISPM projects
  • Manager DMC PPS Lookup Tables (LUT)
  • Distribute PPS Radiometric Processing using the GeoCue Command Dispatch System
  • Distribute PPS Geometric Processing using the GeoCue Command Dispatch System
  • Quickly create multiple ISPM projects for downstream processing for multiple image types (e.g. create complete ISPM projects for RGB and CIR projects from a single PPS run)
Frame CuePac
GeoCue is tightly integrated with Hexagon’s FramePro software for the RCD-30 camera series. This CuePac adds time-saving new features including individual image status tracking, automated and scheduled batch/distributed processing and elegant data error handling to the FramePro workflow for the RCD30. Features include:
  • Imports RCD30 camera data directly into a GeoCue project using the standard flightdata.xml file
  • Maintains a camera configuration and calibration database
  • Creates a graphical map-based view of the project area showing flight boundaries, strips, image footprints (nadir and obliques) and photo centers
  • Displays low-resolution thumbnails collected during flight directly in the map view
  • Individual photo centers can be reviewed, configured and developed directly from within GeoCue
  • Individual camera heads can be developed as needed
  • Batch processing of multiple photo centers can be launched directly from GeoCue to process across multiple machines for greater throughput
  • Integrated viewer for both obliques and nadir photos
  • Refines and exports Exterior Orientation (EO) for each photo center
  • Exports developed images to an ImageStation Photogrammetric Manager (ISPM) project for further processing
CloudPro CuePac
GeoCue is tightly integrated with Hexagon’s CloudPro software adding time-saving new features including individual flight strip tracking, automated and scheduled batch processing and elegant data error handling to the CloudPro workflow for the ALS sensors. GeoCue seamlessly integrates the CloudPro workflow with downstream point cloud processing done in Terrasolid’s TerraScan software, GeoCue’s LP360 software or any similar tools, all in a single common project environment. Features include:
  • Imports ALS LIDAR data directly into a GeoCue project using the standard flightdata.xml file
  • Maintains a sensor configuration and calibration database
  • Creates a graphical map-based view of the project area showing flight boundaries, strip footprints and individual trajectories
  • Individual flight strips can be processed directly from within GeoCue
  • Batch processing of multiple flight strips can be launched directly from GeoCue to process across multiple machines for greater throughput
  • Integrated viewer for LAS files
  • Display of CloudPro generated geotiffs directly in GeoCue map view
  • Creates TerraScan trajectories for use in TerraMatch workflow
  • Drives seamlessly into block/tile segmentation, point classification and downstream workflows via GeoCue’s LIDAR 1 CuePac
Customization
GeoCue Software Development Kit (SDK)
The GeoCue Software Development Kit (SDK) provides the interface library to the GeoCue Repository (Server). This allows third party developers to add software tools to a GeoCue constellation that can connect to the GeoCue Server’s Application Programmer’s Interface (API). The API supports programming in any .NET compatible software development language.
