PCI Geomatics has completed and is now shipping the newest update of Geomatica to customers around the globe.

Additions found in the latest Geomatica build upon the software's remote sensing processing, GIS capabilities, hyperspectral tools, and user productivity practices. Improvements to Geomatica 9 Version 9.1 include processing performance enhancements, stronger spatial overlay capabilities, additions to the on-line help, and for the Geomatica 9 Software Development Kit, several new applications, new interfaces, and added documentation. Rigorous photogrammetry model support is also included for the Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR) and the MEdium Resolution Imaging Specrometer (MERIS) sensors aboard Envisat.

A completely integrated solution, Geomatica 9 Version 9.1 provides geomatics capabilities and productivity enhancing features within a seamless "all-in-one" environment. Easy movement of spatial information between highly integrated applications is a key part of the PCI Geomatics design philosophy, as is meeting the widest possible range of dynamic processing requirements. Advanced remote sensing capabilities share data with spatial analysis, photogrammetry and cartographic processing tools in order to perform these functions without needing to move to other programs, starting with raw image data and ending with information output.

New GIS resources, introduced in Geomatica 9 and improved in Version 9.1, provide advanced functions that broaden remote sensing opportunities while meeting demanding spatial analysis requirements. Similarly, customers introduced to the newest technology for processing hyperspectral data in Geomatica 9 will notice several key improvements: advanced atmospheric correction algorithms, cartography features and pan-sharpening capabilities. Programmable scripting environments, batch processing features, automation tools, and interoperability designs greatly extend Geomatica 9 Version 9.1 user options and opportunities.
