3001 Incorporated Chooses Z/I Imaging's New Digital Mapping Camera 05.08.2003

The Digital Mapping Camera delivers accurate imagery unmatched by competition.

Z/I Imaging Corporation, an Intergraph Company, announced that 3001 Incorporated has purchased the Digital Mapping Camera (DMC) system. 3001 offers consulting, GIS, remote sensing, digital photogrammetry and surveying services to the government and private sector and is a small business contractor for the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) Global Geospatial Intelligence (GGI) contract. In addition, 3001 provides digital data to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, FEMA, the U.S. Navy and various state and local governments and organizations.

"As a leading supplier of digital data, 3001 is committed to providing the latest and the best technology available. As a result, we chose Z/I Imaging because we believe in their approach with the digital camera," said Stephen Hebert, senior vice president, 3001 Incorporated. "We looked at the various digital photography platforms available and selected the DMC due to its high geometric image accuracy, speed of post-processing production, using our existing software for efficient workflows, and the improved overall efficiency and quality of the downstream deliverables we offer our customers."

"3001 is a Z/I Imaging shop first and foremost, now we are a one-stop Z/I Imaging production shop," said Rodger Phelps, chairman, 3001 Incorporated. "I have confidence in Z/I Imaging and believe the DMC and surrounding technology is a wise investment."

"We are very pleased that 3001 has selected the Z/I Imaging Digital Mapping Camera as their next-generation image acquisition system," said Terry Keating, chairman, Z/I Imaging. "3001 is an important supplier of data to federal and state government agencies and have always been an innovator in supplying the latest mapping technology to their customers. This choice of our DMC systems validates our technical direction with the high-quality digital framing sensor."

Z/I Imaging's DMC is unique in that it uses a modular design based on Charge-Coupled Device (CCD) matrix (frame) sensors to achieve high geometrical resolution together with multispectral capabilities. It comprises eight synchronously operating CCD cameras - four parallel cameras generate multispectral imagery for the acquisition of color composites and four converging panchromatic cameras acquire imagery that is digitally mosaicked to form a single high-resolution image. This multi-camera technique provides color composite and panchromatic imagery with the same ground coverage.

The most appropriate technology for large-scale, precision engineering and mapping applications, as well as small-scale mapping needs, the DMC features innovative technology, like rigid sensor geometry and electronic Forward Motion Compensation, to capture imagery with ground resolutions better than two inches. To ensure improved accuracy and efficiency in downstream applications, the DMC is based on the same central perspective that is used extensively by all existing exploitation systems.
