Richmond Hill, Ontario — July 08, 2009 — PCI Geomatics, a world leading developer of geo-imaging software and systems, today announced the availability of an upgrade to its remote sensing and image processing software. Geomatica® 10.2.1 is the latest version of the image-centric desktop software which provides users with additional satellite sensor support as well as new functionality for the SAR Polarimetric Workstation (SPW).
As an industry leader in supporting satellite sensors, PCI Geomatics has included in this release support for RapidEye – a constellation of five sun-synchronous Earth observation satellites which provide large area, multi-spectral images with frequent revisits in high resolution. Additional support for the high resolution X-band SAR imagery provided by TerraSAR-X is also included in this upgrade.
The SPW provides a complete set of tools and applications designed specifically for the processing and analysis of Polarimetric SAR (POLSAR) data, and version 2.1 is now available and compatible with Geomatica 10.2.1. This includes the Touzi Discriminators which make it easier to detect a particular target in a Polarimetric SAR image. The Touzi Decomposition introduces new parameters which remove certain ambiguities not previously understood and provide vastly superior results as compared to conventional algorithms. Additionally, the SPW now supports the following sensors: Radarsat-2, Cosmo Sky-Med and TeraSAR-X.
“With the availability of Geomatica 10.2.1, PCI Geomatics remains committed to meeting the remote sensing and image processing needs of our customers,” said Peter Hazlett , Product Manager at PCI Geomatics. “Building on the innovative features found in previous versions of Geomatica, this release solidifies our dedication to being at the forefront of sensor support, as well as to continue to provide innovative tools through our SPW technology.”
