Richmond Hill, Ontario — Jun 02, 2009 — PCI Geomatics has won the Geospatial Innovator Award from GeoTec Media for its ProLines GeoImaging Server, as announced today at the GeoTec Event in Vancouver, BC.
The category of the Geospatial Innovator Award recognizes geospatial tool developers that have created new software or hardware that expands the possibilities of the geospatial industry. Final nominees were selected from a large pool of applicants nominated by the GeoTec media audience including GeoWorld Magazine, GeoPlace.com and the GeoReport e-newsletter. With a record breaking voting response from around the globe, PCI Geomatics was ahead of its closest competitor by more than 6 percentage points.
Launched in April 2009, the ProLines GeoImaging Server is based on a GPU/CUDA implementation, and has successfully demonstrated the ability to automatically orthorectify 3TBs of imagery per day (approximately equivalent to all of Europe), with plans to demonstrate an 11TB per day system by the end of 2009.
Accepting the award for PCI Geomatics was the Honorable Herb Dhaliwal, Member of the Board of Directors. “We are extremely delighted to accept the Geospatial Innovator Award. The ProLines GeoImaging Server was designed to respond to the market’s need for a faster, less expensive automation technique for processing massive amounts of imagery. With its open and standards based approach it will dramatically decrease the amount of time it takes to deliver critical information on the environment, agriculture, public safety and more; this is especially important in countries such as China and India whereby acute problems affecting millions of people exist.”
