New software tool quickly indexes geospatial image and vector data on local or networked volumes
RICHMOND HILL, Ontario, Canada—June 26, 2013: PCI Geomatics, a world leading developer of remote sensing and photogrammetric software and systems, announced today the release of Geomatica Discover, PCI’s new browser-based software tool that crawls local, system drives or removable drives to automatically create a searchable geospatial data catalog.
“One of the biggest challenges our users are faced with is the rapid rate of data creation, which can cause inefficiencies and result in wasted time searching for suitable geospatial data within their organization when executing projects,” said Peter Hazlett, Product Manager at PCI Geomatics. “Geomatica Discover brings a great deal of value to anyone working with geospatial data by creating a simple, searchable, and graphical database.”
Geomatica Discover is designed to help users locate the data they need for specific projects. Users can either create search queries based on image/sensor type, resolution, acquisition date, geo-location, or search for data by simply panning and zooming on the map based interface to obtain dynamic, real time results over a specific area. For further efficiency, users can also sort imagery based on metadata, define rules to group imagery into sets, and quickly bundle, archive, and share imagery in just a few mouse clicks.
Geomatica Discover supports the latest versions of Internet Explorer (Version 9 or later), Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox.
Geomatica Discover is available for Microsoft Windows operating systems. For more information, please visit: www.pcigeomatics.com/discover
