Intergraph to Supply Z/I Imaging Digital Mapping Camera to Leading Chinese Photogrammetric and GIS Firm, Aerophotogrammetry and Remote Sensing Bureau of China Coal

DMC’s high-quality, digital aerial technology enables quick accurate production of images

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., March 28, 2005 - Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions today announced Aerophotogrammetry and Remote Sensing Bureau of China Coal (ARSC) has purchased Intergraph’s Z/I Imaging(R) DMC(R) (Digital Mapping Camera) to meet the growing demand for high-quality imagery. Using the DMC, ARSC will transform its photogrammetry production to a fully digital workflow, enhancing image quality and accuracy and speeding image production. ARSC is a leading, government-owned photogrammetric firm, which supplies imagery to the China National Administration of Coal Geology as well as other government agencies.

ARSC chose the DMC due to fast processing time and its ability to deliver high-quality imagery. Zhang Wenruo, Director of ARSC, commented, “Demand for digital imagery among Chinese enterprises and organizations has significantly increased over the past couple of years. The DMC will provide the digital technology we need to produce imagery accurately and quickly and address growing market needs for earth imagery.”

The DMC captures imagery with proven ground resolutions as small as 1½ inches per pixel. Imagery acquired with the DMC maintains its initial high geometric and radiometric quality throughout each stage of the project lifecycle - mission planning, sensor management, photogrammetric production and client/server image management, storage and distribution. Another design feature of the DMC is its ability to collect aerial frame photography in panchromatic, color and color infrared bands simultaneously. This allows three separate, high-resolution end products - black and white, pan-sharpened color and false-color infrared - to be generated from a single airborne data set.
