Richmond Hill, Ontario - PCI Geomatics, a world-leading developer of image-centric software and solutions for the geospatial industry, has become certified in compliance testing with the National Imagery Transmission Format Standard (NITFS) for their software Geomatica Focus and Generic Database (GDB).

To become NITF certified, software applications must pass a rigorous testing and review process by an independent government board. This process ensures that NITF files are compatible and interoperable across all systems.

NITF is the standard for formatting digital imagery and imagery-related products among members, agencies and departments of the United States Government. Before a particular system or product can be employed, it must adhere to the United States Federal and Department of Defense (DOD) standards. Compliance testing ensures that NITF standards are met and interpreted by all vendors and developers in a uniform manner.

"PCI Geomatics is thrilled to have reached NITF certification," said Dr. Robert Moses, President and CEO of PCI Geomatics. "National security concerns make the need for accurate information and imagery vital. We look forward to seeing our software used in such a capacity."

A Canadian company, PCI Geomatics is proud to be the first organization outside of the United States to achieve certification from the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC), the agency that issues certificates in conjunction with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA).
