Geomatics, a world-leading developer of software and solutions for geospatial
imaging applications, is pleased to announce the completion of a contract with
the Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) to build an automated production
system for the orthorectification, mosaicking and pansharpening of
This fully automated system is built
on GeomaticaX technology and constructed by the PCI Geomatics Professional
Services team. The system
automatically generates value-added products including ortho images, mosaic
images, and pan-sharpened images derived from standard KOMPSAT-2 panchromatic (1-meter resolution)
and multispectral (4-meter resolution) data.
Image products include scales of
1:5000, 1:10,000 and 1:25,000 for both pan-sharpened and non-pan-sharpened
imagery. Products are clipped based
on the Korean national map index and the system can be operated by KARI staff
using a simple graphical user interface.
“Using our GeomaticaX technology
platform, we were able to deliver a fast, efficient and accurate
image-correction system to the Korea Aerospace Research Institute,” said
Brad Schmidt, Vice President of Sales
and Marketing at PCI Geomatics.
