New Version 5.0

Enabling better business decisions
from high resolution aerial imagery



Aerial Imagery
Rapid Growth
New Applications

Fueled by worldwide Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) market growth, and miniaturized inexpensive sensor evolution, aerial imagery is now cheaper and easier to capture than ever before.  The processing of that imagery into GIS (Geographic Information System)-compatible maps is also evolving rapidly and dropping in cost.  These developments have combined to provide a broad range of new applications and decision support capabilities.

Easiest-To-Use Image Processing Software

The Icaros OneButton™ software is by far the industries’ easiest-to-use image processing product. By utilizing the most advanced photogrammetric and computer vision algorithms, OneButton™ lets you easily and automatically create fully georeferenced products in 2D and 3D, while combining highly optimized performance to produce exceptionally fast and accurate results.

Many Output Options

Outputs that can be produced from OneButton™ include orthomosaics, DEMs (Digital Elevation Models), true color 3D point clouds, orthorectified multispectral band mosaics, and controlled oblique imagery.  Icaros also offers a separate product, called MeasurementTool™ that can be used to display processed images, including obliques and thermal images, and perform accurate measurement and analysis.

Perfect Orthomosaics

OneButton™ orthomosaics are produced from overlapping aerial images that it stitches together and geometrically corrects (“orthorectifies”) to give them a uniform scale. This process removes perspective distortion from the aerial images, making the resulting “mosaic” a map that can be accurately measured and analyzed.

GIS Ready

Processed georeferenced and orthorectified imagery products are output in a form that can be automatically ingested into Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and analytics packages such as Esri, MapBox and ENVI, supporting complex analytics for applications including precision agriculture; pipeline inspection; real estate visualization; construction, engineering projects; and many others.

Immediate ROI

Regardless of your experience, OneButton™ lets you immediately increase ROI and begin building exciting new applications, and dramatically lowers the cost of ongoing data collection and processing for existing applications.

What is new in OneButton™ Standard

  • True orthomosaic images can be produced for more accurate results in urban areas and for survey grade projects.
  • Added “Close-in Inspection” template for projects with oblique imagery
  • Enhanced matching algorithm for images with low overlap and projects with areas having images with no connections between them
  • Support for FLIR thermal sensors
  • New viewer shows 2D outputs (GeoTiff orthomosaic, GeoTiff terrain model), 3D outputs (LAS point cloud, PLY photomesh), fly throughs, and contour lines.
  • Multi-band alignment for Micasense images allowing for alignment of bands for each GPS location and create multi-page Tiff images
  • GeoTiff images are now in BigTiff format
  • GPS accuracy (high, standard, unknown) can be chosen for better processing of highly accurate GPS receivers.
  • Flight altitude can be calculated above ground and corrected if needed to significantly enhance results when this data is incorrect
  • Ground Control Points can be sampled before or after bundle block adjustment and be assigned a specific accuracy for XY and Z
