PCI Geomatics Expands Partnerships in Southern Africa

MARKHAM, Ontario, Canada - April 14, 2016: PCI Geomatics, a world leading developer of remote sensing and photogrammetric software and systems, announced today a renewed partnership with its reseller for Southern Africa.

MapAfrika, a well-established company based in Johannesburg, has been providing land surveying services, camera systems and software to the Southern African region for many years. In addition, MapAfrika provides Geomatica and GXL image production systems and solutions to a growing number of customers who are leveraging the power of the satellite and aerial image processing technology developed by PCI Geomatics.

“Geomatica is fast becoming the chosen remote sensing and photogrammetry solution for universities, government agencies and mapping companies throughout Africa”, said Kevin Melhuish, President and Owner of MapAfrika.

The increased use of Geomatica in the region can be traced back to key initiatives such as the one initiated in March 2015, which established a unique partnership between PCI Geomatics, MapAfrika, and Stellenbosh University. An Education Alliance agreement was implemented to promote cooperation and information exchange between top researchers and industrial partners to advance remote sensing and image processing methods.

“PCI greatly values the contributions of higher-learning institutions to advance our collective knowledge of remote sensing science and applications,” said Arnold Hougham, VP of Sales and Marketing at PCI Geomatics. “Our partnership with Stellenbosch University, which includes the participation of our reseller MapAfrika, has already yielded excellent collaboration on our latest DEM extraction research and product releases. Feedback has been collected from top researchers to further improve specific algorithms in Geomatica”.

MapAfrika will be responsible for customers from an increased number of countries in Africa, including South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Namibia, Zambia, Malawi, Angola, Tanzania, Madagascar, Mauritius, DR Congo, Republic of the Congo, Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda.
