Slovenia, a 20.273 km2 Central European country with 2 million inhabitants and a growing economy, recently joined European Union. GZS reflects this growth, especially with increased share of international markets.
“The increasing demands in competitive international markets made us decide to significantly improve the performance of our airborne equipment. We needed a new flexible camera system, which will allow us to shorten the data acquisition time and at the same time, improve the quality and accuracy. After the first photo-flights, we could see that Intergraph’s DMC performs very well also in low-light conditions delivering high quality data in impressive scale range,” said Radomir Vučković, Executive Manager, GZS. “The DMC solution, complete with back office post-processing components, has been seamlessly plugged into our existing production line without any difficulties. We began the full digital production with the new quality of data instantly. Within days after the DMC delivery and install, we were able to complete some small projects in our country and the first government projects abroad in record time.“
