PCI Geomatics Releases Geomatica 2013

“With this year’s release, we have really added tools that will speed up the processing workflow in many different areas of the software,” said Peter Hazlett, Product Manager for Geomatica. “It is not uncommon for projects of hundreds to thousands of images in size that need to be processed in a single block. New tools have been added and performance has been improved for compute intensive algorithms, saving you hours in processing time”.

Geomatica 2013 adds incredible performance improvements to streamline your workflow like never before. Starting with Focus, new, wizard based workflows have been added for Atmospheric Correction that will allow users to automatically detect cloud and haze in imagery – which will make producing seamless mosaics in cloud plagued areas more intuitive. In OrthoEngine, users will see incredible improvements in handling large projects, including Quality Assurance panels that automatically update, Ground Control Point (and Tie Point) visualization, leading edge automated seamline generation, and the best algorithms to match images to each other automatically through new automatic ground control collection algorithms that can achieve registration accuracies down to 1/10th of a pixel!

Included in the Geomatica 2013 release is a set of new, redesigned algorithms to automatically extract Digital Elevation Models from single or up to hundreds of stereo pairs collected by high resolution sensors. In addition, creating DEMs from multi-source elevation data (billions of lidar points, contour lines, breaklines) is now possible through powerful new tools for DEM creation from vector data. All DEM generation algorithms have been implemented to leverage OpenMP, which means customers will see big performance improvements (3x to 4x faster than previous).

In addition to the great new and improved tools, Geomatica 2013 will also offer a unique, new tool to help customers improve the way they work with their large, complex data holdings. Geomatica Discover, which will be available in a Geomatica 2013 service pack, is a standalone, web based data discovery tool, will crawl your local or system drives to automatically create footprints for geospatial raster and vector data. The interface allows for map based or advanced text based querying, allowing customers to quickly and efficiently discover their data holdings to help organize production work.

Geomatica 2013 is available for 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows (Windows XP/Windows 7/Server 2003/Server 2008) starting today. A Linux version will be available in the coming weeks. For more information on Geomatica 2013, please visit www.pcigeomatics.com/geomatica
