If you are a reader of this blog, you have no doubt seen one or more of the handful of “I Fly UltraCam” videos that the Microsoft UltraCam team has produced over the last couple of years. In these videos, UltraCam customers from across the world explain in their own words why they choose the award-winning Microsoft UltraCam photogrammetric digital aerial sensors for their aerial data acquisitions.
Recently, we turned to our customers and invited them to create and submit their own “home-made” “I Fly UltraCam” videos. Over the coming weeks, we are going to highlight here on the blog, the submissions we received in response. They are all well-done and entertaining, but most importantly the videos provide good information on the benefits of flying with UltraCam technology.
So break out the popcorn, get comfortable, and read on for the first of our customer-submitted “I Fly UltraCam” videos from GEODIS.
With offices in 13 countries, GEODIS is a leading European company in the fields of geodesy, photogrammetry and remote sensing … and an UltraCam flyer! Recognizing that digital technology produces images of better resolution and quality, GEODIS made the transition to digital in 2006 choosing the UltraCamX. The company later purchased a second UltraCamX in 2007, and then recently in June 2012 acquired an UltraCam Eagle and at the same time upgraded its two UltraCamX units to UltraCamXp systems! GEODIS continues to choose UltraCam because they recognize that the UltraCam allows them to operate more efficiently and to better compete.
But don’t take my word for it … watch the video and hear Karel and Patrik tell you themselves! They cover reasons why they transitioned to digital, why they added the UltraCam Eagle and upgraded their UltraCamXp’s, what features and advantages they like about the UltraCam Eagle, and the types of projects and customers they will serve with their UltraCam systems. After watching the video, be sure to take a look at their very informative case study that describes how GEODIS is using the UltraCamXp to capture 161,600km2 of Poland, which is more than half of the total area of the country, to create orthophotos for the Land Parcel Idenitification System (LPIS), a homogenous geographical database covering agricultural land and a basic component of the IACS system used for the administration and control of the European subsidies in agriculture.
Thanks to GEODIS for these great testimonials!!
