PCI Geomatics | Richmond Hill, ON


 PCI Geomatics, a world-leading developer of remote sensing and photogrammetric software and systems, announced today that the company is making its training textbooks available to the general public for non-commercial use.

 “PCI’s extensive training program is one of the most flexible around,” said Kevin Jones, Director of Marketing at PCI Geomatics. “Last year, we supplemented our classroom training programs with a convenient, online program to further ease the learning process. Making our textbooks available, free of charge, to anyone hoping to learn more about our software, and image processing in general, is the natural next step our educational initiative.” 
 
PCI Geomatics’ instructor-led training courses cover a wide range of topics for users of all skill and experience levels. In Geomatica I, students learn about viewing geospatial imagery in Geomatica Focus and the basics of geospatial data processing. Geomatica II introduces advanced concepts such as imagery classification, atmospheric correction, and spatial analysis. The Geomatica OrthoEngine two-day program takes users on an in-depth tour of the most popular module in Geomatica by teaching orthorectification, DEM extraction, mosaicking, and the company’s award-winning pansharpening tool.
 
Due to popular demand, PCI Geomatics recently introduced a fourth course to its online training program – Geomatica Radar. Continuing its role as a leader in the field of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) image analysis, the company delivers a course detailing the orthorectification, calibration, polarimetric analysis and classification of SAR imagery.
 
Until now, the textbooks were only available as part of a complete training program. The information contained is the training textbooks can be easily adapted, and contains a great deal of information to help teach basic and advanced remote sensing concepts. PCI Geomatics hopes that Universities, colleges and other educational institutions can leverage these resources to enrich their curriculum.
