National Aviation Academy (NAA) has reached an agreement with Russian company "Geo-Alliance" to introduce PCI Geomatica software in the NAA for processing of aero-photo and satellite data, it was said at a presentation organized by the Geo-Alliance specialists in the NAA.
"Geo-Alliance" is the official authorized provider of PCI Geomatica software.
PCI Geomatica software, developed by the Corporation PCI Geomatics (Canada) is widely used internationally for photogrammetric processing of data, of Earth remote sensing (ERS), and their preparation for future application in cartography, geo-information projects, Internet publications, and other applications.
As was said during the presentation, the introduction of the system allows the Academy, with the help of Geo-Alliance, to handle the data obtained from the sensing satellite. Geo-Alliance has distribution agreements with companies owning satellites DigitalGlobe / HitachiSoftware, EuropeanSpaceImaging, GeoEye, SPOTImage and InfoterraGmbH, and is a partner of the US Geological Survey (USGS).
Information received can be used by such organizations as the State Committee for Land and Cartography, Ecology and Natural Resources Ministry, the State Border Service, etc.
Introducing the PCI Geomatica solution will enable NAA to expand opportunities for conducting research work, use it in the learning process, and use its capabilities after Azerbaijan launches its own satellite.
According to the agreement with the NAA, Geo-Alliance will provide services for training in the PCI Geomatics software products, and organize basic courses on satellite Earth remote sensing data.
