Optech CZMIL Wins Geospatial World Technology Innovation Award

Toronto, Canada, May 13, 2014 — Optech, the world leader in the development, manufacture and support of high-accuracy lidar 3D survey systems and productivity-enhancing workflow software, is pleased to announce that its Coastal Zone Mapping and Imaging Lidar (CZMIL) has won a Geospatial World Technology Innovation Award.

CZMIL was awarded the prize at the Geospatial World Forum on May 8, 2014, in Geneva, Switzerland for combining its tightly integrated lidar, RGB and hyperspectral sensors with a cutting-edge data fusion workflow to achieve unprecedented results in turbid waters and muddy seafloors while penetrating 80 meters deep in clear conditions. The fully automated CZMIL HydroFusion software workflow uses advanced algorithms to compensate for difficult water and seafloor conditions and generate seamless 3D topographic/bathymetric environmental products, including bottom classification maps, object detection, and DEMs.  In particular, recent tests in US and Korean waters have confirmed that HydroFusion’s new Turbid Water software module allows CZMIL to extract measurements from muddy seafloors that no other lidar bathymeter can reach, including river mouths, harbors, and marshlands.

“We are very pleased that the Optech CZMIL system was recognized by Geospatial World for its technology advances supporting critical management decisions for coastal areas,” said Max Elbaz, President of Optech, Inc., who accepted the award on behalf of Optech. “This award complements the MAPPS award received this past February for the CZMIL HydroFusion software, which provides an efficient workflow from mission planning to 3D visualization of bathymetric products. The CZMIL system has proven its capabilities to our customers well, with five systems already tested, validated, and put into service by domestic and foreign government agencies, who have been using CZMIL to map turbid, shallow, and muddy bottomed waters that confound other lidar bathymeters.”
