Santiago de Chile, Chile -- October 16, 2012 -- The Chilean National Military Mapping Institution (IGM), has contracted with DAT/EM Systems International’s reseller GeoTooBox Ibérica S.L. (GTBi) to purchase 24 Summit Evolution licenses.
The IGM is currently involved on a large project called “Latitud Sur” which aims at mapping the entire country with 1:25000 scale cartography. The 3D data will be captured with Summit Evolution under ArcGIS environment directly.
After several months of testing and evaluating different products IGM found Summit Evolution as the best solution for their needs.
“Our decision to purchase Summit Evolution as the main software used for the project “Latitud Sur” is based on the ability to easily handle a wide variety of projects, the easy to use interface and the seamless connection with ArcGIS which allows the 3D capturing directly in the geodatabase. As former Summit Evolution users in connection with MicroStation, we found the same performance in the connection with ArcGIS”. said Coronel José Riquelme, Subdirector de Ingeniería del IGM.
“DAT/EM Systems International is pleased that IGM selected Summit Evolution for its Latitud Sur project and we are sure this state-of-the-art digital photogrammetric workstation will allow the IGM to deliver a high quality results on time” said Jeffrey Yates, DAT/EM Systems General Manager.
“We are very proud of having IGM as one of our clients and being an important part of the big, challenging and ambitious Latitud Sur project. GTBi will be also supporting the IGM all along the project period as we have been successfully doing since the IGM became our client some years ago” said Miguel Pelaz, GTBi General Manage.
