PCI Geomatics announced that Geomatica 9 Version 9.1, the company's newest "all-in-one" geospatial software release, is now available for Linux users. PCI Geomatics has tested their newest Geomatica technology on SuSE and other Linux adaptations with success, and continues to dedicate resources to Linux development for future expansion.

In preparation for wider Linux support in 2004, PCI Geomatics is building and testing Geomatica technology using dedicated Linux kernel models. This will allow PCI Geomatics to rapidly support other new and existing Linux variations, including Linux Mandrake and Linux Cartman. In addition to the Linux operating system, the Geomatica product line is available for Sun Solaris 8 and Solaris 9, IRIX SGI 6.5.15, as well as Microsoft Windows NT, 2000, XP, 98, and ME operating systems.

Additions found in the latest Geomatica build upon the software's remote sensing processing, GIS capabilities, hyperspectral tools, and user productivity practices. Advanced remote sensing capabilities seamlessly share data with spatial analysis, photogrammetry, and cartographic processing tools without needing to move data to other programs. Processing can begin with raw image or spatial data and end with accurately corrected data, extracted spatial information, analytical reports, online maps, and more. A completely integrated solution, Geomatica 9 Version 9.1 presents superior geomatics capabilities and productivity enhancing features within a single unified environment.
