SAN FRANCISCO, April 25, 2005 - GeoSpatial World 2005 - Intergraph
ICC required a data acquisition solution that was versatile enough to deliver quality aerial imagery from photoflights in non-optimal conditions and that could deliver multiple products - black and white, color and infrared imagery - in a single flight. Additional needs were for the imagery to be compatible for use with ICC’s digital photogrammetric systems and workflows, specifically orthophoto and automatic aerial triangulation processes.
ICC selected the DMC after tests validated the camera system met its technical criteria of image quality, versatility and compatibility. Test flights flown over various types of terrain with resolution targets on the ground confirmed the imagery captured by the DMC was higher quality than traditional film-based systems.
“We are happy to put the final step in place to convert our entire process to a digital environment,” said Josep Lluis Colomer, Vice Director, Cartographic Institute of Catalonia. “We will not only benefit from the time saved by having a completely digital workflow, but also from the highly precise imagery collected with the DMC.”
The DMC captures imagery with proven ground resolutions up to 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.
