GISmatters Selects PCI Geomatics Software

Richmond Hill, Ontario – May 27, 2009: PCI Geomatics, a world leading developer of geo-imaging software and systems, is pleased to announce that GISmatters, specialists in custom analytical and visual solutions, has selected PCI Geomatics software to generate high-quality terrain products for its spin-off division, All Terrain Digital.

The products serve a wide array of markets including oil and gas exploration, alternative energy development, hazard analysis, mitigation, and environmental/conservation areas.

"Throughout my 20 years in the geospatial field, PCI Geomatics has had the reputation of having the best software for stereo photogrammetry," said Dr. Christopher Duncan, President, All Terrain Digital. "When I started All Terrain Digital, I surveyed colleagues already involved in this line of work and PCI Geomatics was the clear favorite for quality, usability, and support."

"All Terrain Digital’s interest is in high-accuracy DEM production with a heavy emphasis on streamlining and automation," said Steven Corr, Account Manager at PCI Geomatics. "The mix of graphical and scripting interfaces, combined with PCI’s powerful elevation extraction technology, enabled Geomatica 10.2 to be the perfect software fit."

"The automation capabilities within Geomatica allow us to process and deliver quality elevation products at a significantly lower cost than comparable products from other sources," adds Dr. Duncan.

OrthoEngine Automatic DEM Extraction is available within Geomatica Core or Geomatica Prime plus the associated sensor suite. The Auto DEM module allows for the creation of Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) from stereo airphotos, stereo images and stereo RADAR data.

Mr. Speaker,
I rise here today to speak on a successful organization in my riding of Richmond Hill, PCI Geomatics. This company is a world-leading, innovative developer of image-centric software and solutions for geospatial imaging applications.

Last November, this company joined other Ontario based innovative environmental technology companies, in a trade delegation to China led by Premier McGuinty and Minister Chan.

The successful mission resulted in 600 million dollars in contracts. The company signed agreements with the National Geomatics Centre of China and Chinese Centre for Earth Observation and Digital Earth – focusing on environmental monitoring.

Built on the success of last year’s trip, PCI Geomatics has further extended its market reach in China this year, and expanded its market share in Europe.

Mr. Speaker,
Ontario has a lot to offer to the world, with our knowledge-based, green economy, and with our government – business partnership. Going green establishes international opportunities and creates jobs. In these challenging times, we need to be more aggressive than ever on the international stage.

I would also like to congratulate PCI Geomatics, for their continued success in the international market, and for creating world renowned technology. Thank you.
