Point of Beginning

Z/I Mouse

February 1, 2005
Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions introduced the Z/I Mouse, a high-precision 3D mouse that simplifies digitizing data and capture of stereo data for input into photogrammetric processes. The new mouse ships with the company's redesigned Z/I Imaging ImageStation digital photogrammetric workstation and Z/I Imaging ImageStation Stereo Softcopy Kit (SSK). With a radical new ergonomic design, the Z/I mouse gives photogrammetrists an easy-to-use and accurate way to input data without the need for a digitizing surface. The Z/I mouse features include force-sticks for X, Y and Z movement, optical mouse movement and thumb wheel for fine Z movement, and fully programmable keys to add digitizing flexibility. The mouse is a USB device and plugs directly into a USB port. (Intergraph, Huntsville, Ala.)
