Graz, Austria — May 11, 2010 — GEOspatial Professional Solutions Inc. (GPSi) has contracted with Vexcel Imaging GmbH, a Microsoft® company, to purchase an
UltraCamL medium format camera system.
“Market trends dictated that we transition to a full digital workflow. Despite a struggling economy, we made a business decision to invest in high technology assets that will help us deliver the customer satisfaction we guarantee,” said Ms. Alice C. Ramos, President and Chief Executive Officer of GPSi. “The customer support provided by Vexcel Imaging was a factor in our selection of the UltraCamL, as well as its price and the match between its capabilities and the needs of our customers. The fact that GPSi has been posting positive growth since its inception gave us confidence this is the right decision."
Mr. Paul Hamilton-Rivers, Chief Operating Officer of GPSi, added, “The UltraCamL is the best fit for our requirements. We do small and medium size mapping projects and corridor mapping, and our customers demand quick turnaround and exceptional image quality. The UltraCamL provides the capabilities we need.” He also stated, “We are proud to be the only mapping company based in California offering the UltraCamL aerial digital camera from Vexcel Imaging.”
The UltraCamL photogrammetric medium format digital aerial camera provides a reliable and economical solution for producing image data of exceptional quality.
