May 01, 2009 -- Ofek Aerial Photography completed an orthophoto of 10,000 sq. km in 15 cm GSD in just 4 days flight shortly after receiving a VisionMap A3 Digital camera and automatic processing system. The processing was completed within 5 weeks and demonstrates the phenomenal capabilities of VisionMap's technology in terms of image acquisition and processing efficiency.

As part of the close cooperation between the companies, Ofek has been VisionMap's beta-site for the testing of A3. During the beta phase, Ofek photographed its first digital projects with A3 in 2007. The system was highly productive, enabling acquisition of thousands of square kilometers in a single day's flight and produced photogrammetric solved vertical and oblique imagery. Combined with a fully automated processing system, the VisionMap A3 created a seamless solution, enabling substantial cost reduction and fast delivery.
Following successful testing, Ofek has recently decided to purchase a system and is now operating its first A3 digital aerial camera. "The results are very satisfying and exciting. On every single day of good weather we can photograph with VisionMap's A3 system three times more than we could with any other digital system," said David Peretz, Ofek's CEO. "Ofek has been a great partner to work with. We are lucky to have such a close relationship with a leading and highly professional aerial photography and mapping firm and are looking forward to support Ofek's growing business," added Yaron Vilan, VisionMap's CEO.
