PCI Geomatics has released GeoImaging Tools for ArcGIS 2.0 (http://www.pcigeomatics.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=125&Itemid=4), offering automated tools for correcting raw satellite imagery, GeoImaging Tools is revolutionizing the integration of remotely sensed imagery into GIS workflows.
The release of GeoImaging Tools version 2.0 coincides and integrates directly within ESRI’s recently released ArcGIS 10 software. With the GeoImaging Tools Image Correction Module, ArcGIS users will benefit from rigorous, automated multi-sensor support and be able to correct raw imagery using sensor model information, optionally with automatic GCPs and tie points from reference data such as chip databases, reference mosaics, or vectors, according to Terry Moloney, interim president and CEO, PCI Geomatics.
Higher levels of registration accuracy are achievable via block bundle adjustments. Users also have the option of saving the correction parameters and create mosaic datasets for direct use with ArcGIS for on-the-fly processing reducing data duplication.
GeoImaging Tools are designed specifically for ArcGIS users who use imagery within their workflows. GeoImaging Tools for ArcGIS 2.0 is PCI’s second GeoImaging Tools product release, and features direct integration within the ArcGIS 10 Arc Toolbox. Upcoming product releases include the Radar Module, which will provide tools for Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data processing and analysis, including a Polarimetric toolkit and support for all commercially available SAR sensors.
