RICHMOND HILL, Ontario, Canada, Jan. 28, 2014—PCI Geomatics, a world leading developer of remote sensing and photogrammetric software and systems, announced today that, through its Colombian reseller, GeoSpatial Engineering, it has delivered a GeoImaging Accelerator (GXL) Satellite and Aerial processing system to the Instituto Geográfico Agustín Codazzi (IGAC).
IGAC is the entity responsible for producing the official map and the basic cartography of Colombia; developing the national property register; creating the soil characteristics inventory; advancing geographic investigations in support of territorial development; training and educating professionals in geographic information technologies, and coordinating the “Colombian Spatial Data Infrastructure” or ICDE. IGAC will be using the GXL image processing system to produce accurately orthorectified basemaps for all of Colombia.
“The speed, accuracy, and multi-sensor support of the system were determining factors in selecting PCI’s GXL for our projects,” said Jaime Duarte, Assistant Director of Cartography and Mapping at IGAC. “Creating mosaics of over 1,000,000 km2 is an enormous task that requires the exceptional speed and automation that, we found, only GXL can provide.”
PCI’s exclusive reseller in Colombia, GeoSpatial, specializes in information solutions, development and technology infrastructure. A PCI reseller for 15 years, the company has a highly qualified team of specialists in Geomatics and infrastructure engineers focusing its efforts on engineering solutions for public and private organizations that include information management, 3D technologies and the latest geospatial methods for deriving valuable information for decision making.
“GeoSpatial prides itself in delivering custom tailored geo-imaging and GIS solutions to organizations of all sizes,” said Carlos Niño, General Manager at GeoSpatial. “I am pleased that the team here was able to identify the GXL as a solution suitable for IGAC’s projects.”
“IGAC is a demanding customer and a national and regional leader in the production and dissemination of geospatial information, so we are pleased to have won this important contract with our GXL-Satellite and GXL-Aerial systems and offer leading edge technology to IGAC,” said Arnold Hougham, VP – Sales and Marketing at PCI Geomatics. “GeoSpatial and the delivery team here at PCI did an excellent job in helping IGAC recognize the value of high speed, multi-sensor image processing as it relates automating time consuming tasks. GXL will provide the organization with the ability to generate their geo-image products in a fast, efficient manner."
