RICHMOND HILL, Ontario, Canada, Dec. 16, 2013”PCI Geomatics, a world leading developer of remote sensing and photogrammetric software and systems, announced today that it has awarded Beijing Space Eye Innovation Technology Co. Ltd (BSEI) as the company's #1 Platinum Reseller for 2013. The award recognizes BSEI as the top reseller within the PCI Geomatics Reseller Network.
In 2009, PCI Geomatics appointed BSEI as the Exclusive Reseller for Geomatica in China to better serve the needs of the local customers; where the geospatial sector has seen significant growth over the last decade. In January of this year, the Exclusive Reseller Agreement was expanded to include other leading edge technology developed by PCI Geomatics, most notably the GeoImaging Accelerator (GXL) which was developed in response to the need for handling extremely large processing projects.
The demand in China for operational tools that rapidly provide accurate image maps has increased greatly given the investment the Chinese Government is making in the geospatial sector. Collection frequency and the sheer volume of geospatial data has consistently been on the rise as new satellite sensors are developed and launched; increasing the collection capacity and variety of imagery that is collected. Over the last several years, BSEI has been a very active reseller for PCI Geomatics, investing and developing its internal staff to work with, and support, the local customers.
We feel it is important to provide localized versions of the software, as well as technical documentation such as white papers, to ensure customers in China can properly appreciate and evaluate the powerful technology developed by PCI Geomatics, said Xiaoyang Cheng, President,BSEI. In China, there are currently plans to launch many new earth-observing constellations, each containing several satellites over the next few years. The demand for operational solutions to work with these large volumes of imagery will be considerable. PCI's large volume processing technology is a perfect fit for these Big Data challenges.
We are very pleased to honour and recognize the work of BSEI in representing PCI Geomatics in China, said Terry Moloney. President and CEO of PCI Geomatics. The energy and efforts that are being invested in China's geospatial sector are quite remarkable. PCI Geomatics, together with BSEI is providing customers in China with innovative technology to address these Big Data challenges.
