Geospatial Data Asset From PCI Geomatics Goes To COTESA
Oct 27, 2009, post by Adam Wątróbski

PCI Geomatics has successfully provided an operational automated system for the orthorectification, pansharpening, and mosaicking of large volumes of satellite imagery to COTESA, a privately held GIS company based in Valladolid, Spain.

The Spanish Government is working with COTESA to fulfill its requirements under the Multinational Geospatial Co-production Program (MGCP), undertaken by 28 NATO nations participating in the production of global high-resolution vector geospatial data.

Employing PCI Geomatics’ advanced component architecture (GeomaticaX), the highly automated system is used to operationally process high resolution satellite imagery from QuickBird, IKONOS, and SPOT-5. The volume of data to be processed with PCI Geomatics’ ProLines is estimated at 10,000 images over a three year period. PCI’s Proline system is highly modular, delivering COTESA the ability to easily add additional processing capability, thus increasing throughput and performance as required.
