PCI Geomatics Software Supports RapidEye Sensor

Richmond Hill, Ontario — July 16, 2009 — PCI Geomatics, a world leading developer of geo-imaging software and systems, is pleased to announce support for the satellite sensor RapidEye, in its Geomatica® software. RapidEye is the only geospatial solutions provider to own and operate their own constellation of Earth observation satellites.

As the industry leader in supporting satellite sensors, PCI Geomatics has included support for RapidEye in its Geomatica 10.2.1 version release. RapidEye is a constellation of five sun-synchronous Earth Observation satellites which provide large area, multi-spectral images with frequent revisits in high resolution collecting multi-spectral data in 5 meter pixel size. RapidEye is the first commercial sensor which makes available the red-edge wavelength, useful for detecting changes in chlorophyll content, giving insight into vegetation health. RapidEye is supported by the Satellite Ortho Suite in Geomatica 10.2.1., which is currently available from PCI Geomatics.

“PCI Geomatics has proven that Ground Control Points (GCPs) are not required to correct RapidEye data and achieve accuracy within 1 pixel using the Geomatica software,” said Dr. Philip Cheng, Senior Scientist at PCI Geomatics. “This allows the user to generate high accuracy ortho/mosaic images anywhere in the world - instantly.”

“We are pleased that PCI has come through as the first geo-imaging software provider to specifically support RapidEye's level 1B data product,” commented Frederik Jung-Rothenhaeusler, RapidEye's head of Product Development. “We are also impressed that the PCI software can provide such precise locational accuracy with their software, which is of obvious importance to our customers.”
