PCI Geomatics has successfully delivered an operational automated system for the orthorectification, pansharpening, and mosaicking of large volumes of satellite imagery to COTESA, a privately held GIS company based in Valladolid, Spain. The Spanish Government is working with COTESA to fulfill its requirements under the Multinational Geospatial Co-production Program (MGCP), undertaken by 28 NATO nations participating in the production of global high-resolution vector geospatial data.
Employing PCI Geomatics’ advanced component architecture (GeomaticaX), the highly automated system is used to operationally process high resolution satellite imagery from QuickBird, IKONOS, and SPOT-5. The volume of data to be processed with PCI Geomatics’ ProLines is estimated at 10,000 images over a three year period. PCI’s Proline system is highly modular, providing COTESA the ability to easily add additional processing capability, thus increasing throughput and performance as required.
