HUNTSVILLE, Ala., June 12, 2006 -- Intergraph Corporation today announced the availability of Z/I Mission, a comprehensive photo flight management system that provides an innovative solution for aerial survey procedures.

From creating initial flight plans to generating reports and indices for the final exposures, Z/I Mission provides a rich data environment that can access any geo-referenced raster backdrop, vector mapping data, and digital orthophotos for flight planning. This mission planning system addresses functions such as flying a particular azimuth, planning the most economical mission for a given region of interest, 3D mission planning, and more.

"Successful data acquisition starts with proper mission planning," said Ben Eazzetta, President of Intergraph's Security, Government & Infrastructure division.
