Columbian Firm Aeroestudios Purchases an UltraCamLp

  • Rating12345

Aeroestudios S.A., an aerial mapping and surveying company based in Medellin, Colombia, has contracted with Microsoft UltraCam reseller GeoToolBox Ibérica S.L. (GTBi) to purchase an UltraCamLp photogrammetric digital aerial camera system. Aeroestudios completes cadastre work for a number of Columbian government entities and serves the domestic and international oil and mining industries.

“Our decision to purchase an UltraCamLp as our first digital camera is based on its proven advanced technology, efficient pre- and post-processing capabilities, and convenient compact size. All of these factors are necessary to meet our goal of successfully competing in domestic and international markets,” stated Mr. Luis Miguel Vélez Zamorano, President and Founder, Aeroestudios. “We also were influenced by the outstanding customer support provided by GTBi and its local sales representative in Colombia. GTBi worked closely with us to determine the most suitable solution at this time, with the option of updating both hardware and software in the future.”

Winner of the Technology Innovation category in the 4th Annual MAPPS Geospatial Products and Services Excellence Awards competition, the UltraCamLp features an image footprint collection capacity of 92 megapixels (11,704 x 7,920 pixels pan). The UltraCamLp combines innovative hardware, electronics, and software that result in an efficient camera system capable of collecting five spectral bands per exposure: red, green, blue, and near-infrared data, in addition to the higher-resolution panchromatic data.

“Microsoft is pleased that Aeroestudios selected an UltraCamLp for its transition from analog to digital technology,” said Alexander Wiechert, Microsoft Business Director. “We look forward to a long relationship with Aeroestudios, as the full UltraCam product line is designed to offer multiple upgrade choices as our customers grow.”
