MARKHAM, Ontario, Canada—January 10, 2017: PCI Geomatics, a world-leading developer of remote sensing and photogrammetric software and systems, announced today it will be collaborating closely with Deimos Imaging to support the PanGeo Alliance.
Deimos Imaging is a founding member of the PanGeo Alliance, which is the first global alliance of Earth Observation sensors operators. The PanGeo Alliance is made up of eight member companies, and a fleet of 15 operational Earth Observation sensors, providing multispectral imagery in a wide range of resolutions (from 20 m to 75 cm per pixel), 4k full-color videos, and AIS data.
“PCI Geomatics is a recognized global leader in satellite Earth Observation image processing software solutions. We are working closely with PCI Geomatics to ensure our customers have access to software tools that support the imagery from the PanGeo sensor fleet,” said Fabrizio Pirondini, CEO of Deimos Imaging.
PCI Geomatics is working closely with teams from Deimos Imaging to ensure support for pansharpening, atmospheric correction orthorectification, Digital Elevation Model (DEM) extraction and automatic mosaicking and color balancing operations. Support for many of the sensors has already been implemented by PCI Geomatics, including Deimos-1, KazEOSat,-1, Theia, Dubaisat-1, TH-1, Deimos-2, Dubaisat-2, and other sensors that make up the PanGeo Alliance fleet.
“Providing support for the PanGeo sensors is of critical importance to earth observation community, who make operational use of geospatial imagery to deliver products and services to their customers on a daily basis,” said Arnold Hougham, Vice President, Sales and Marketing at PCI Geomatics. “PCI Geomatics develops software that is modular, scalable and flexible. Not only will we provide access to operations for essential image processing steps (ortho-mosaic, DEM extraction), we also plan to deliver application based demonstrations through our marketing channels to help educate customers on what analysis and information can be performed on such a rich multi-sensor data source which is offered through the PanGeo constellation.”
PCI Geomatics will be preparing instructional videos and webinars, and provide documentation on its dedicated customer portal, support.pcigeomatics.com to provide helpful information on working with the imagery from the PanGeo Alliance fleet over the coming months.
