Point Grey, a world-leading designer and manufacturer of innovative, high-performance digital cameras, today announced new model additions to the Blackfly family of ultra-compact PoE GigE Vision cameras. The new Blackfly models use Sony Exmor CMOS sensor technology, which combines the speed of CMOS with the low noise, high dynamic range, and high saturation capacity of many of today's CCDs. The BFLY-PGE-14S2C-CS features a color IMX104 1/3" CMOS rolling shutter sensor capable of 720p resolution at 60 FPS, and boasts a full well depth of 19,000 electrons. The BFLY-PGE-23S2C-CS uses a color IMX136 1/2.8" sensor capable of 1080p resolution at 27 FPS, and offers dynamic range of almost 70 dB. Both models deliver excellent color fidelity, very low temporal dark noise (4 e-), and support long exposures up to 30 seconds.
Blue Marble Geographics, in partnership with the University of Southern Maine, is pleased to announce the release of COAST v1.0. COAST is a free software tool built on the Global Mapper SDK for use in modeling storm surge and sea level rise in relation to adaptation strategies and the cost-benefit analysis of those strategies. Blue Marble’s geospatial data manipulation, visualization and conversion solutions are used worldwide by thousands of GIS analysts at software, oil and gas, mining, civil engineering, surveying, and technology companies, as well as governmental and university organizations.
