A completely integrated solution, Geomatica 9 provides superior geomatics capabilities and productivity enhancing features within a seamless "all-in-one" environment for remote sensing, GIS, photogrammetry, and cartographic processing. "PCI Geomatics has supported UNIX platform versions of our software products since we started in the business over twenty years ago," notes David Stanley, Vice-President of Research and Development for PCI Geomatics. "We are meeting the geospatial software needs of an important market - one where industrial-strength UNIX operating platform must be matched by leading geospatial solutions. PCI Geomatics can be depended upon to deliver the best geomatics software solutions to this market."

PCI Geomatics began shipping the Microsoft(r) Windows(r) release of Geomatica 9 to customers in June 2003. "Geomatica 9 is a very competitive geo-solution for all PCI Geomatics customers, large or small," states Dr Robert Moses, President and CEO of PCI Geomatics.

Geomatica 9 is full of processing advantages for all users." With easy movement of spatial information between highly integrated applications, Geomatica 9 is designed to meet the widest range of requirements for today's dynamic geospatial user. Advanced remote sensing capabilities share data seamlessly with spatial analysis, photogrammetry, and cartographic processing tools in order to perform these functions without needing to move to other programs, starting with raw image data and ending with information output. Other added features include new GIS resources, hyperspectral tools and data compression technology, new atmospheric correction algorithms, advanced new cartography features, and improved pan-sharpening capabilities. Greater user flexibility and control is provided through programmable scripting environments, batch processing features, automation tools, and interoperability improvements. Geomatica 9 also includes support for JPEG 2000 and SPOT5. When added up, this release of Geomatica 9 represents a major enhancement of the successful Geomatica product line, first introduced in 2000.
