Ontario, Canada: PCI Geomatics launches GeoImaging Accelerator Aerial (GXL-A) software at the Intergeo 2010 Conference in Cologne, Germany. This follows an earlier announcement in March when Microsoft’s Photogrammetry division, Vexcel Imaging GmbH, agreed to partner with PCI to produce an image processing system specifically for Vexcel Imaging’s UltraCam aerial cameras and UltraMap photogrammetric software.
GXL-A is a best of breed offering and completes Vexcel’s UltraMap workflow product line with the addition of high-speed orthorectification and mosaicking capabilities. Using PCI’s multi CPU/GPU distributed processing architecture, aerial image producers will realise significant improvement in production throughput and reduced costs. The product will be offered as a standalone deskside or single-node rack system. It is fully upgradable to multiple node architectures and can be integrated into existing IT configurations for existing airphoto producers.
David Piekny, Solutions Product Manager at PCI Geomatics, said, “This technology is truly a game changer. We are seeing the work that PCI has put into extending our UltraMap offering,” said Alexander Wiechert, Business Director of Microsoft and Managing Director for Vexcel Imaging GmbH.
Meanwhile, PCI Geomatics appointed German GeoConsultants Group (3G) as a local reseller for PCI’s Geomatica and GeoConference family of products for the Libya and Tunisia regions. 3G joins over forty other PCI Reseller Partners responsible for the distribution of PCI Desktop and Solutions technology across the globe.
