PCI Geomatics to support THEOS satellite

Richmond Hill, Ontario – October 3, 2007: PCI Geomatics, a world-leading developer of software and solutions for geospatial imaging applications, is pleased to announce that it will support image products from the THEOS satellite (Thailand Earth Observation System), to be launched in November 2007.

PCI Geomatics will develop support for THEOS data import, precision orthorectification models, image mosaics, and advanced data fusion techniques such as panchromatic sharpening. Support for THEOS will also include stereo DEM generation from the sensor’s forward-and backward-looking images.

Owned and operated by the Thai Ministry of Science and Technology’s Space Agency (GISTDA), THEOS will provide customers in Thailand and abroad with image processing capabilities and geo-referenced image products. Potential applications include projects in cartography, land use, agriculture, forestry, coastal zone and flood risk monitoring, and disaster mitigation.

“PCI Geomatics congratulates GISTDA on the upcoming launch of the THEOS satellite,” said Adam Evans, Sales Manager for Asia at PCI Geomatics. “As a long-time supporter of geospatial imaging in Thailand, PCI looks forward to supporting the sensor for a wide variety of applications.”
