Ontario, Canada: PCI Geomatics, a developer of geo-imaging software and systems, has been working closely with Esri to make imagery more accessible to a broader user community.
PCI’s GeoImaging Accelerator (GXL) technology is currently being used to support the processing of GeoEye data into ortho-corrected and colour balanced image products that will be made available for free through ArcGIS Online. PCI’s automated GXL Satellite image production system will be used to process high resolution GeoEye imagery. In addition to the GXL processing capacity, PCI will also lend its geoimaging technical expertise to the project. The goal of the project is to process imagery and generate accurate imagery content, mosaics and associated metadata for ArcGIS Online.
Terry Moloney, President and CEO, PCI Geomatics said, “PCI has invested a great deal in developing automated, high speed GXL image processing technology. I am happy to see it being used to create Terabytes of high quality output products that will be made available through ArcGIS Online”.
Jack Dangermond, Esri’s President, said, “Our partners are instrumental in the continued evolution and adoption of GIS. Through our collaboration with PCI Geomatics, we look forward to speeding up the production of high quality, high resolution imagery to be integrated in our ArcGIS Online platform”.
