The President Director of PT Air Bali, Greg Pitman, and the Managing Director of APSE Pty Ltd., Brisbane, John Trippett, announced that PT Air Bali had been appointed as an Asia Pacific licensee for the EnviroMAP integrated topographic and environmental mapping system using the new QuickCAM II airborne cameras.
“Our objective is to provide clients with a new level of mapping service, whilst opening new markets by providing rapid digital mapping at lower cost than all other alternatives” said Greg. John Trippett from APSE noted that the QuickCAM II system, using high quality, high resolution (8.5 megapixel) full colour and multispectral cameras and lenses coupled with the Applanix Position Orientation System and differential GPS, was designed to capture multispectral images at up to 8 frames per second with ground resolution of 10 cm or smaller depending on project requirements. “This gives considerable benefits including improved mapping accuracy through highly redundant data sets as well as excellent image mosaics over wide areas” he said.
Air Bali is currently installing the QuickCAM II system for survey operations into both helicopters (Bell 206), and fixed wing aircraft and is also setting up a regional processing center for EnviroMAP products, services, training and client support in Bali.
