  • “The speed of the GXL-Aerial system is impressive, and was a key determining factor in our purchase decision. We have operationally integrated the GXL into our production chain, and are currently processing images captured by our UltraCamXp camera. The integration of the GXL was very quick, thanks to the technical support provided by PCI Geomatics. We have been able to get up to speed and fully operational in order to process very large projects that had extremely rapid completion time requirements. By using the GXL system, we are able to save time and money – allowing us to expand our business.

    • 28. For over 20 years, i-cubed has used PCI software to generate high quality orthorectified products that aredelivered to its customers through various platforms, including on-demand streaming. Processing largeland masses is a critical aspect for i-cubed, since customers look for the depth of their imagery catalogsover different areas of interest around the world.OTHER RESULTS Ability to process multiple different types “ of images to create seamless mosaics “We never would have High quality pan-sharpened image undertaken a project of products this magnitude if not for the cost-effective automation and flexibility that PCI software offers” - Russ Cowart President
    • 29. Blackbridge Geomatics operates a ground receiving station in Lethbridge, Alberta. They use PCItechnology to quickly and efficiently produce continuous maps of complete provinces (e.g. Alberta,British Columbia) based on the large volumes of SPOT imagery.OTHER RESULTS Ability to scale operations based on demand “ Traditional methods for National Imagery Project: over 5,000 correcting SPOT images were SPOT 4/5 images orthorectified covering simply too expensive and time- the complete Canadian landmass (see: intensive to meet the needs of our client, the Government of Canada. The scalability of a PCI Geomatics automated orthorectification system will allow for the rapid and cost- effective production of accurate images with little user intervention” - Brett Michelson Vice President
    • 30. Esri invited PCI to become a Gold Level Business partner in 2009, recognizing PCI’s expertise in highspeed, high quality satellite image processing. Faced with the daunting task of pan sharpening,orthorectifying and mosaicking 50 million km2 of GeoEye imagery, Esri turned to PCI Geomatics. OTHER RESULTS “  “Through the use of the GXL Implementation of a Cloud based GXL system capable of Cloud system that PCI has processing up to 3 terabytes per day deployed to our Amazon Cloud instances, we are working  Integrated processing and publishing petabytes of color diligently to provide high- balanced, continuous base resolution and high-quality imagery to content as quickly as possible  See for for the samples of Esri published ArcGIS Online platform” imagery processed by the GXL Cloud System - Steven Lambert Senior Program Manager
