[SatNews] PCI Geomatics, through its Colombian reseller, GeoSpatial Engineering, has delivered a GeoImaging Accelerator (GXL) Satellite and Aerial processing system to the Instituto Geográfico Agustín Codazzi (IGAC).
IGAC is the entity responsible for producing the official map and the basic cartography of Colombia; developing the national property register; creating the soil characteristics inventory; advancing geographic investigations in support of territorial development; training and educating professionals in geographic information technologies, and coordinating the “Colombian Spatial Data Infrastructure” or ICDE. IGAC will be using the GXL image processing system to produce accurately orthorectified basemaps for all of Colombia.
“The speed, accuracy, and multi-sensor support of the system were determining factors in selecting PCI’s GXL for our projects,” said Jaime Duarte, Assistant Director of Cartography and Mapping at IGAC. “Creating mosaics of over 1,000,000 km2 is an enormous task that requires the exceptional speed and automation that, we found, only GXL can provide.”
