Now supported in Geomatica 10.1.1 is Kompsat-2, the high-resolution satellite belonging to the Korean Aerospace Research Institute (KARI). KOMPSAT-2 acquires imagery in black and white (Pan) at a resolution of 1 m, and in colour (MS) across 4 bands in the visible (red, green, blue) and near-infrared at a resolution of 4 m.
Support for ALOS data products has also been extended to include ERSDAC PALSAR level 1.5 long version, level 4.1 and level 4.2 data
Other satellites fully supported in this release include:
In addition, PCI Geomatics’ Generic Database (GDB) Technology has been extended, allowing for the exporting of raster and vector layers into KML format with direct loading of layers into Google Earth (version 4.0 or greater). The GDB Technology also now supports LASF version 1.0 for both reading and writing.
A new RMOVERLAP algorithm has been added to the Modeler and EASI environments which simplify cutlines generated by OrthoEngine. By removing the overlap between cutline polygons, cutlines are easier to edit and are more intuitive.
The GRNEHN algorithm is now included in the pan sharpening workflow, which produces a more natural dataset and is a better match with actual photos, as it improves the green band in the output image.
“By focusing this update on sensor support, we are providing our customers with the most up-to-date tools to incorporate data from the latest high resolution satellites into their workflows,” said Peter Hazlett, Product Manager for Geomatica.
