Z/I Imaging and AeroMap collaborate to capture Alaskan imagery in photo flight.

Z/I Imaging Corporation, an Intergraph Company, presented the Digital Mapping Camera (DMC) system at the welcome reception and airborne technology exhibits for the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) in Anchorage, Alaska. AeroMap U.S., a full services mapping firm, mounted Z/I Imaging's Digital Mapping Camera (DMC) in one of AeroMap's Piper Navajo aircraft to acquire imagery of the Alaskan terrain. The photo flight captured more than 1200 images during the three photo flight missions, flying at varying altitudes of 2,500 feet to 15,000 feet to produce ground sampling distances of three inches to one and a half feet.

Z/I Imaging Corporation, an Intergraph Company, will showcase the industry's latest advances in large-format frame sensor technology for digital aerial cameras and integrated photogrammetric software with live Alaskan imagery captured for the Annual Society of Photogrammetric and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) Conference. Attendees can view the high geometric and radiometric quality of the DMC imagery captured in any of the seven post-processed outputs, such as color rgb and color infrared, or as a 3D model processed using ImageStation(R) software in Z/I Imaging's booth (400) during the show.

"The photo flight flown by Z/I Imaging and AeroMap demonstrates the precision and efficiency that companies gain when using the DMC for earth data capture," said Alistair Stuart, North American DMC program manager of Z/I Imaging. "Imagery based on 12-bit precision is immediately available for use for downstream analysis and visualization. The result is increased efficiency in the overall production process and well as higher quality deliverables such as orthophotos."

Combining high-quality resolution and engineering-scale accuracy, the DMC delivers imagery with ground resolutions as fine as two inches, which is applicable for small- and large-scale mapping and engineering projects applications, including: agriculture, cadastral mapping, cartography, forestry, land use/land cover mapping, environmental studies, natural hazard assessment, flood risk management, transportation engineering, urban planning, civil engineering, oil and gas exploration and geology. The DMC helps companies improve productivity by providing a complete digital workflow for data acquisition that includes mission planning, sensor management, digital imagery processing, photogrammetric software and a client/server image management, storage and distribution system.
