Alabama, USA, 2 May 2006 – Intergraph Corporation announced at the 2006 American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing Conference that it has received the Type Certification from the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the sole science agency serving the U.S. Department of the Interior, for the Intergraph Z/I Imaging DMC (Digital Mapping Camera). Intergraph is the first organization to receive the USGS certification on a large format sensor – assuring DMC customers that their high-quality digital mapping camera is certified by an unbiased, multi-disciplinary science organization.

To earn the USGS Type Certification, Intergraph’s DMC underwent extensive reviews, which included submitting a detailed description of the camera system including hardware, software, factory calibration procedures, quality control processes and procedures, system documentation, user documentation and manufacturer best use recommendations. In addition, USGS inspected all applicable manufacturing and testing areas to certify that these processes were followed.
