Geomatica(r) software and eCognition to assist National Wetland Inventory

SHARE

PCI Geomatics(r) is pleased to be providing multiple licenses of PCI Geomatica and eCognition software to the Canadian Space Agency, Ducks Unlimited, Environment Canada and several other organizations participating in the development of a wetland inventory and classification system for Canada. These members, organized under the National Wetland Inventory umbrella, are cooperating to provide a wetland inventory that will eventually contribute to ecosystem monitoring throughout North America. Definiens’ eCognition and PCI Geomatics’ Geomatica software for remote sensing, photogrammetry, spatial analysis, and cartography offer advanced solutions that support the collection, cataloguing, and detailed analysis of geospatial wetland data using remotely sensed imagery, GIS data, and other geospatial resources. The findings produced from the National Wetland Inventory initiative will serve research scientists and policy planners for decades. Other organizations contributing to this national research effort include the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources and the Manitoba Remote Sensing Centre.
