Improving access to high-quality imagery

May 24th, 2013, Published in Articles: PositionIT

PCI Geomatics has renewed its Gold-Tier Partnership with Esri for 2013, through the Esri Partner Network (EPN). As an Esri partner since April 2009, PCI Geomatics provides leading-edge technology that integrates with Esri’s ArcGIS solution and allows users to automatically process and analyse satellite imagery from many different sensors. PCI Geomatics software provides powerful and accurate image correction capability that scales from desktop, server, and cloud-based systems to handle projects of any size. Their innovative development and powerful systems led them to work with Esri on an ambitious project to build a 1 m resolution basemap for ArcGIS Online. Through the use of a cloud-based image processing system, over 50-million km2 were orthorectified, pansharpened, and mosaicked using massive amounts of parallel processing on Amazon’s cloud with PCI’s GXL technology. PCI and Esri also announced the grant recipients for the Esri and PCI Natural Resource Imagery Grant Program. The program will play a key role in furthering the understanding of how imagery can be used beyond a reference dataset within the GIS community and beyond.
