PCI Geomatics expands offering with PostgreSQL support

Richmond Hill, Ontario – September 17, 2008 - PCI Geomatics, a world leading developer of software and solutions for geospatial imaging applications is pleased to announce the expansion of its image management systems with the addition of support for the PostgreSQL database. PCI Geomatics’ image management systems now support the capability to read both raster and vector layers from a PostgreSQL database, and offer an easy to use and flexible solution for effectively managing imagery and GIS data.

PostgreSQL is an open source object-relational database management system. The new support offered by PCI Geomatics consists of functions for loading raster and vector layers into a PostgreSQL database. Vector layers are stored using the PostGIS extension to PostgreSQL, and raster layers are stored using PostgreSQL large objects. Furthermore, vector layers that have been loaded into a PostgreSQL database by any software are now accessible through PCI Geomatics’ Generic Database Technology (GDB) if the layers are stored using the PostGIS extension.

“PCI Geomatics is pleased to present to our users the choice of selecting an open source database management system as part of our offerings,” said Dr. Richard Pollock, Director of Product and Technology Delivery at PCI Geomatics.

PCI Geomatics’ PostgreSQL image management systems also support a robust set of image processing functions, web access through a web feature service (WFS), and raw data dissemination over the web via an OGC compliant Web Coverage Server (WCS). In addition, PCI Geomatics is able to define a database schema and build applications around this capability, addressing specific image management needs.

The PostgreSQL support will be incorporated into PCI Geomatics’ flagship desktop software, Geomatica, beginning with the 10.2 version, scheduled for early next year.
