Ontario, Canada, 21 June 2006: PCI Geomatics has achieved complete certification for its flagship software, Geomatica, to be used for processing data from the CARTOSAT-1 satellite, from the Indian government-contracted ANTRIX Corporation.
The CARTOSAT-1 satellite was launched on May 5, 2005 by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). With two panchromatic cameras that deliver a spatial resolution of 2.5 meters, CARTOSAT-1 provides stereo data suitable for advanced, large-scale mapping applications. The data are also optimal for generating digital terrain models (DTMs) and digital elevation models (DEMs).
This certification states that Geomatica Version 10.0.2 has complied with all six identified levels, which include: image import and image processing, single image triangulation, stereo pair triangulation, block triangulation for mono imagery, block triangulation for stereo imagery, digital topographic mapping.
