New release of desktop image processing software

October 30th, 2012, Published in Articles: PositionIT

PCI Geomatics has released the 32-bit version of Geomatica 2013; the company’s complete and integrated desktop image processing software featuring tools for remote sensing, digital photogrammetry, geospatial analysis, map production, mosaicking and more. This enables users on 32-bit systems to easily work with projects of hundreds to thousands of images in size quickly and easily. 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. In OrthoEngine, users will see improvements in handling large projects, including quality assurance panels that automatically update, Ground Control Point (and Tie Point) visualisation, leading edge automated seamline generation, and the best algorithms to match images to each other automatically. The release includes 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. All DEM generation algorithms have been implemented to leverage OpenMP, which means customers will see big performance improvements (3x to 4x faster than previously).
