UltraCam Eagle Purchased by TopGis in Czech Republic

Graz, Austria, April 3, 2014—TopGis, Ltd., has contracted to purchase an UltraCam Eagle digital aerial photogrammetric camera system with an 80mm lens from Microsoft’s UltraCam business unit and subsidiary.

The primary focus of TopGis is photogrammetric aerial surveys and data processing. TopGis will use the UltraCam Eagle to serve clients in the public and private sectors throughout the Czech Republic and Central Europe.

“The UltraCam Eagle offers the best fit for our needs for aerial imaging, orthophoto map production, derivative product development and related web map services,” stated Pavel Strašák, Chairman of the Board, TopGis. “In 2014 TopGis is starting a project to collect aerial imagery and produce orthophoto maps of the entire Czech Republic, so we require high volume collection capacity, reliability, and excellent data quality.”

The UltraCam Eagle is designed with an exchangeable lens system, which gives TopGis the option of later adding a 100mm lens for projects where building lean is an important consideration and a 210mm lens for high-altitude flying.

“The Ultracam Eagle’s exceptional technical capabilities allow us to create not only aerial orthophoto maps, but also color-infrared orthophoto maps, and to use automated techniques for digital surface generation and vegetation classification and to create other enhanced products,” said Drahomíra Zedníčková, CEO, TopGis. “The UltraCam Eagle gives us a competitive advantage over other aerial imaging companies.”
