Intergraph Corporation has announced Digital Mapping Inc. (DMI), a West Coast firm in Huntington Beach, California, specializing in photogrammetric mapping, has purchased the company’s Z/I Imaging DMC digital mapping camera. The DMC provides DMI the flexibility that comes from a digital acquisition platform. This fully digital production environment shortens the delivery cycle of projects from small-scale orthophotos to large-scale engineering mapping products to multispectral products for remote sensing applications.
Time- and cost-saving benefits are two reasons DMI chose the DMC. An important differentiator for DMI is the flexibility in acquiring multi-spectral data that enables the generation of black and white, natural color and false-color infrared imagery from a single airborne data set. The DMC’s range of applications allows DMI to expand its reach into nontraditional mapping markets as part of its growth strategy. Eliminating the associated cost and time of film processing and scanning further streamlines DMI’s current production processes. This ensures DMI can provide quick turnaround on imagery and downstream photogrammetric products for its customers.
