DigiCad 3D 8 released
is a tool for dealing with images, drawings, photographs of building facades and maps. It operates either directly on raster images or by digitization. It is used in photogrammetry, cartography and, increasingly in architectural photogrammetry, offering powerful, easy-to-use instruments. DigiCad 3D includes features for elimination of perspective distortion, partial transformation, mosaics, and more. Version 8.0 allows irregularly curved surfaces to be straightened, can eliminate optical deformation caused by photo lenses, and features a new user interface. Pricing is $1,200 (CD documentation) or $1,350 (hard copy documentation) or $360 (1-year 'rental' license).
