DT Research, designer and manufacturer of purpose-built computing solutions for vertical markets, recently announced the DT380CR and DT380Q rugged lightweight tablets, weighing two pounds and light enough for field workers to carry all day, yet with an 8-inch display that is large enough to facilitate a large number of indoor/outdoor computing assignments as well as provide high brightness with capacitive touch. These new tablets have IP65 and MIL-STD-810G ratings for military-grade durability, seamless information capture-transmission capabilities and hot-swappable batteries result in no work interruptions– increasing productivity while simultaneously offering organizations an affordable rugged solution.
Kevin Jones, Executive Director of Marketing for PCI Geomatics, spoke with GISCafe Voice about the release of new software for Geomatica and GXL, the company’s flagship software for complete and integrated desktop and enterprise geoimage processing. Geomatica features tools for remote sensing, digital photogrammetry, geospatial analysis, mosaicking, and more that can be deployed through the Geomatica desktop, Python workflows, or through large-volume-production systems. The focus of the new release is enabling big data processing for large archives of satellite data, which need to be processed to a scientifically rigorous level known as Analysis Ready Data (ARD). The new ARD tools provide methods to create datasets that can then be used for Multi-Temporal Analytics (MTA) leveraging the Open Data Cube infrastructure.
