Product Name:SURE
Product Description:
Year of introduction:2013
Year of last update:2015
Modular :SURE is a dense image matching software for retrieving up to one 3D sample for each pixel. Professional production is possible due to sharp edges, quality information, scalability to large datasets and workflow customization options. The package contains modules for generating dense point clouds, DSMs, True Orthos and filtered 3D point clouds. Developer APIs enable the integration into third party software.

DEMs & Orthoimages 
Automatic matching :Semi-Global-Matching variation (tSGM). By efficiently matching on stereo models and subsequently merging the result in the point cloud generation, low noise point clouds with quality information can be retrieved. Hierarchical approaches speed up the process and enable the support of depth large variations in the scene.
