Pan-sharpening algorithms 'fuse' the high-resolution panchromatic and low-resolution multispectral imagery together to create a high-resolution color image. The high-resolution color image preserves the original color fidelity and allows for better visualization and interpretation. When coupled with PCI Geomatics high precision satellite technology and new atmospheric correction capabilities, highly accurate orthorectified pan-sharpened imagery can be produced from a wide variety of sensors. Many new satellite sensors provide high-resolution panchromatic (black and white) imagery along with lower resolution multispectral (color) imagery, making pan- sharpening support within Geomatica product a high-demand feature and giving PCI Geomatics a strong competitive advantage in the market.
Geomatica is PCI Geomatics' powerful and complete geospatial information software solution, with strengthened raster and vector image-centric processing capabilities. A one-stop "do-it-all" answer, Geomatica is built with the function and flexibility to meet all of tomorrow's demands for the Remote Sensing, Spatial Analysis, Cartographic, and Photogrammetry professional worlds.
