ILV-Fernerkundung has acquired its second Intergraph Z/I Imaging Digital Mapping Camera (DMC) to meet increased demand for high resolution aerial imagery.
Huntsville, Ala., July 9,
2008 - ILV-Fernerkundung, a leading provider of aerial surveying and remote
sensing in Germany and throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA),
has acquired its second Intergraph Z/I Imaging Digital Mapping Camera (DMC) to
meet increased demand for high resolution aerial imagery.
In 2004, ILV-Fernerkundung
deployed the first commercial digital camera system in Europe
through the purchase of the DMC. Due to the DMC's precise geometric accuracy,
ILV-Fernerkundung was granted more contracts for survey projects in sun-rich,
southern countries across EMEA that demand greater accuracy of position, height
and color to produce images of high quality. For the first time, orders from
abroad account for more than 50 percent of ILV-Fernerkundung's total flight
project revenues for the year.
In addition to providing
higher quality imagery, the DMC allows ILV-Fernerkundung to significantly speed
its workflow. "Without the need for film development and scanning, aerial
photographs of Thuringia in central Germany can now be taken in only
ten days, which was not previously possible," said Martin Wagner, founder
and chief engineer at ILV-Fernerkundung. "The image quality and seamless
production workflow of the DMC allow us to perform more projects more
efficiently. The second DMC will play a significant role in the future
expansion of our business."
"The high resolution
and productivity afforded by the DMC have enabled aerial survey companies to
expand internationally, extending Intergraph's market leadership globally and
making the DMC one of the most successful large-format digital aerial cameras
in the world," said Gerhard Lauenroth, account manager for photogrammetry
and remote sensing at Intergraph Germany.
In addition to the DMC,
Intergraph's comprehensive photogrammetry portfolio includes a full line of
peripheral technologies and software to ensure superior performance and quality
for the entire length of a project, from flight planning to image
post-processing. Among Intergraph's innovative photogrammetry solutions is the
industry's first and only Solid State Disk (SSD) storage technology, which
reduces the size and weight of the camera system and aircraft needed to achieve
high-quality imagery. This new storage technology will play a key role in the
efforts of ILV-Fernerkundung to further the innovative multi-sensoral aspect of
