UltraMap v3.9 underscores Microsoft's commitment to providing our aerial imaging customers with tools that further improve operational efficiencies and produce data products of the highest quality, said Alexander Wiechert, Microsoft Business Director.

Furthermore, these updates increase the flexibility of the UltraMap workflow, a core benefit of our software that was also recently augmented through subscription-based pricing for ˜just-in-time' processing. These recent developments, and those to come, are brought about by an understanding of the customer's business and our desire to help them by aligning our business model to their needs.
