MARKHAM, Ontario, Canada, September 16, 2015 — PCI Geomatics, a world leading developer of remote sensing and photogrammetric software and systems, announced today that it has released the Geomatica Developer Edition (GDE). GDE puts the power of Geomatica into the hands of developers to create innovative and automated solutions and workflows to address complex geospatial image processing challenges.
The Geomatica Developer Edition offers access to all Geomatica modules and extensions, ensuring developers are working with the latest version of the software. GDE provides Python level access to over 550 algorithms as well as core Geomatica functionality such as rasters, coordinate systems, metadata, control points, math models and raster elevation data. Documentation, coding examples, YouTube videos, online help, sample scripts and tutorials as well as membership to the Geomatica Developer Network are some of the many benefits and resources that are available.
“Geospatial imagery contains untapped information that can be extracted using automation.” said David Piekny, Product Marketing Manager at PCI Geomatics. “By putting the Geomatica platform in the hands of developers who can combine it with other tools and expert knowledge, new solutions can be built to benefit a broader set of people that do not need to be remote sensing experts.”
One of PCI’s first partners in developing innovative solutions using GDE is Pinkmatter, a geospatial systems integrator based in South Africa. Pinkmatter leverages Geomatica processing in their offerings, such as Far Earth, a software suite which offers end to end production workflows, from online customer order to final online or offline delivery. Geomatica algorithms are implemented alongside other sophisticated data ordering and delivery tools and perform chained tasks such as orthorectification, mosaicking and change detection.
