New endless possibilities with the Eagle Mark 3

From the middle of August we now have the use of the most advanced aerial camera system from Vexcel, the UltraCam Eagle M3. The size of one PAN photograph is 26 460 x 17 004 px, meaning an image size of 450 Mpx; the physical size of one pixel is 4 micrometres. At a flight altitude of 2 500 m and with a GSD of 10 cm the actual size of the area captured in a single shot is a remarkable 2 646 metres transversely and 1 700 metres in the direction of flight. This means that less than half the number of images needs to be taken of the area compared to our existing UltraCam Xp. The camera can record an image every one and a half seconds.

Our EM3 is currently installed in the Beechcraft Super King Air B200 of our partner Weser Airborne Sensing. The camera underwent a real baptism of fire in taking images over the complicated Alpine terrain around Zell am See, where Grossglockner, the highest mountain in Austria, is also situated, and where we were able to capture aerial imagery of 20 cm GSD, with 80/45 % overlaps, over an area of almost 5.500 km² within mere three aerial missions.

Rolling Stones in Prague

As life is not all about work, but entertainment too, at the beginning of July we went to a concert of the legendary Rolling Stones, which took place at the airport in Letňany, Prague. The British rockers played in Prague again after fifteen years as part of their latest No Filter Tour. Although we only went as a small group, we enjoyed the day all the more for it. We’ll remember Mick Jagger’s dance moves and excellent voice, Keith Richard and Ron Wood’s guitar skills and Charlie Watts’ flawless drumming for a long time to come.

New premises for our Hradec branch

At the beginning of April our Hradec branch moved to new premises right at Hradec airport. We are now housed in hangar no. 72 and so always have an overview of the status of our planes when they are parked in the hangar.

Hradec Králové airport is a regional civil airport situated on the northern edge of Hradec Králové between the districts of Věkoše and Rusek. The airport is operated by Letecké služby Hradec Králové a. s. The airport is classed as a public national airport and a category 2B non-public international airport and has two take-off and landing runways – a concrete runway 2 400 metres long and 60 metres wide and a grass runway 800 metres long and 25 metres wide

New SURE Aerial software

New SURE Aerial software

We have a new program from the New Year - SURE Aerial - designed for the creation of a correlated dot cloud, DSM, true orthophoto and also a textured 3D reality model. The only two inputs are RGB (RGBI) images taken from a vertical sensor or from an oblique camera system, and the external orientation parameters of the images after calculating aerotriangulation. The program is optimized to work with large volumes of data and no manual seamline editing is needed.

Who did we support in 2017?

Who did we support in 2017?

In 2017 we sponsored several events in the Brno region – both within and outside our field.

International Geodetic Pentathlon 2017 (Secondary Industrial School of Civil Engineering in Brno)

The first in 2017 was that we supported students of the Secondary Industrial School of Civil Engineering in Brno, to enable them to travel to Lučenec in Slovakia to compete in the 12th annual Geodetic Pentathlon, which this year was held on 21st – 22nd April. The Geodetic Pentathlon is a sports and general knowledge competition, organised by the Oskar Winkler Secondary Industrial School of Civil Engineering in Lučenec in collaboration with the STAV-GEO Lučenec civic association. Its aim and purpose is to establish international contacts between students at geodetic and geoinformation schools from various countries, compare their theoretical knowledge and practical skills and create opportunities for experience to be exchanged.

The competition involves completing a route several kilometres long with stations at which the students compete in the individual disciplines in the competition, which are generally geodetics-related activities and a knowledge test on geodesy, cartography, photogrammetry and GIS.

The competition is unique in the Central Europe region and this year’s event was entered by 29 competition teams from 16 schools from the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary.

Geoparty 2017 (FCE VUT in Brno)

One of the events that we support on a regular basis is the Geoparty, which is organised by students in their first year of the follow-up Geodesy and Cartography Master's degree program at the Faculty of Civil Engineering of Brno University of Technology. This year the event, which is now traditional, was held on 29th November and was the jubilee 40th year of the party. Every year this social and entertainment event is attended by around 300 students on the Geodesy and Cartography course, and teachers and graduates of the FCE of Brno University of Technology. The official Geoparty programme is to enrol first year students into the “Surveying Guild”.

Traditional New Year’s Eve run up the steps in Bílovice nad Svitavou

The last event we sponsored was the now traditional New Year’s Eve run up the steps, which this year was organised by ROB SK Radiosport Bílovice nad Svitavou together with the municipality of Bílovice nad Svitavou. This was the 28th year of this traditional event, which celebrates both the end of the old year and the start of the new one. As usual, the starting line was at the bottom of the steps by the station, with several categories for men, women and children. A total of 157 people competed in the race and the fastest was Michal Suchánek with a time of 23.17 s.

Traditional end-of-year celebrations

As we do every year, we again met up to celebrate the festive end of the year. The programme and venue for this year’s even were chosen by the Hradec branch. The programme included a demonstration of aeronautical equipment and facilities at Hradec airport, including a tour of the new premises our aviation section is to move to. After a short stroll around the Christmas markets we moved on to the Observatory and Planetarium, where, amongst other attractions, we watched “Dream to Fly” (trailer), describing how people learned to fly.

"Discover the mystery of flight with Leonardo da Vinci, Montgolfier brothers, Wright brothers and other inventors. Experience the adventure and find out how this immense and challenging dream, for which mankind has strived since the beginning of history came true."

The culmination of the all-day programme was a pleasant informal get-together over a good meal at the Hospůdka u Mlejna.

We'll be at INTERGEO 2017!

INTERGEO - the latest annual conference and trade fair for geodesy and geoinformatics – will be held from 26th to 28th September 2017. The venue for this year’s fair is within reasonable distance of the Czech Republic, in Berlin, and so we decided that we couldn’t miss out on such an important event for our field as a whole. So, if you’re planning to visit INTERGEO, make sure to stop by our stand, which will be situated in hall 3.1, stand number C3.004 (see map).


INTERGEO is the world’s leading trade fair in geodesy, geographic data and information and land management. In 2016 the fair was visited by more than 17 000 people from a total of 107 countries around the world. Over 500 exhibitors from more than 30 countries have also ready confirmed their presence at this year’s event. The trade fair will be held from Tuesday to Thursday and will be open every day from nine o’clock in the morning until six in the evening.

Come and chat with our employees over a glass of beer. We look forward to seeing you!

For more information, please visit the official INTERGEO 2017 website.

Moving to new offices

Since February 2017 our Brno branch has been housed in new premises. We have not moved too far, and are still based at Lesná, now at Slavíčkova 827/1a in the Agroprojekt building, and even still occupy the fourth floor. The only change you’ll notice when you come to visit is that you don’t turn right as you exit the lift/staircase, but left instead. This move has given us some very nice premises, including our own reception area and a lovely view of Brno. Come and visit us.
