PCI Geomatics Partners with Microsoft’s Vexcel Imaging

Richmond Hill, Ontario — March 31, 2010 — PCI Geomatics, a world leading developer of geo-imaging software and systems, announced that it is partnering with Microsoft’s Photogrammetry division, Vexcel Imaging GmbH. The alliance is designed to leverage the strengths of the two organizations to produce an end-to-end image processing system developed specifically for customers of Vexcel Imaging’s UltraCam series of high-resolution digital aerial cameras and UltraMap photogrammetric software.

Through PCI Geomatics’ scalable GeomaticaX technology, a complete workflow will be developed to take advantage of parallel processing and Graphical Processing Units (GPUs), to automatically orthorectify and mosaic hundreds of UltraCam images per day.

“We are very pleased to be working with PCI Geomatics to extend our UltraMap offering,” said Alexander Wiechert, Business Director of Microsoft and Managing Director for Vexcel Imaging GmbH. “Our Chief Photogrametrist has been very impressed with the speed of PCI’s GXL image processing technology, along with the stunning color balancing results for mosaicked UltraCam imagery. We look forward to offering our clients a streamlined, continuous workflow that will allow them to offer competitive products derived from UltraCam to the marketplace.”

“Vexcel Imaging is recognized as a market leader in the field of high resolution, digital photography, and PCI Geomatics remains committed to providing cutting edge, turnkey image processing tools for the industry,” said Allan Place , Director of Global Sales at PCI Geomatics. “The integration of our technologies will represent a breakthrough in automated, rapid and efficient technology for ortho-processing thousands of UltraCam images in a matter of days.”

Development on the end-to-end workflow is currently underway, and will greatly improve processing throughput for orthorectifying, pansharpening and mosaicking UltraCam imagery. Future plans include the ability to accelerate true ortho image production and the automatic generation of digital surface models from stereo UltraCam imagery.
