Ontario, Canada: PCI Geomatics released GeoImaging Tools for ArcGIS, version 2.0. The company claims that the product offers accurate and highly automated tools for correcting raw satellite imagery.
The release of GeoImaging Tools version 2.0 coincides and integrates directly within ArcGIS 10 software. With the GeoImaging Tools Image Correction Module, ArcGIS users will benefit from rigorous, automated multi-sensor support and be able to correct raw imagery using sensor model information, optionally with automatic GCPs and tie points from reference data such as chip databases, reference mosaics, or vectors. Higher levels of registration accuracy are achievable via block bundle adjustments. Users also have the option of saving the correction parameters and create mosaic datasets for direct use with ArcGIS for on-the-fly processing reducing data duplication.
With a sharp increase in data volume and collection platforms in recent years, accurate registration of large complex datasets remains a challenge. PCI’s GeoImaging Tools provides unparalleled automation for correcting imagery, making it possible for GIS users to achieve critical tasks such as feature extraction and change detection.
“With access to many unsupported sensors and data formats, along with the ability to create more spatially accurate imagery directly within ArcGIS, GeoImaging Tools is opening up new doors for GIS users,” said Terry Moloney, Interim President and Chief Executive Officer, PCI Geomatics. “GeoImaging Tools automates the image correction process so that GIS users can spend more time extracting relevant information from imagery, recognised as an integral part of geospatial analysis.”
