Leica Geosystems Geospatial Imaging at GEOINT 2005

Leica Geosystems showcases its complete digital workflow at GEOINT

Norcross, GA — Leica Geosystems Geospatial Imaging will be an exhibitor at GEOINT 2005 Symposium in San Antonio, Texas October 30 – November 2, 2005. Leica Geosystems will highlight its offering of hardware and software products as an exhibitor at the nation’s premier Geospatial Intelligence event.

The Leica Geosystems exhibit in Booth #630 will showcase its suite of software products including a preview of ERDAS IMAGINE® V9.0, an enterprise enabled imagery exploitation environment that utilizes the Oracle Spatial 10g database and the ESRI ArcSDE database. This latest version of ERDAS IMAGINE further integrates powerful image processing functionality with geospatial information technology enabling intelligence analysts to turn imagery into information.

Leica Geosystems offerings also feature other defense-related capabilities including: Leica Global Retriever which allows for graphical search and imagery retrieval across the enterprise; significant enhancements to Leica Photogrammetry Suite with version 9.0; and the new Image Processing Objects for the Commercial Joint Mapping Toolkit (C/JMTK).

“We are pleased to once again be a part of GEOINT as an exhibitor,” said Bob Morris, President of Leica Geosystems Geospatial Imaging. “This is a great forum where we can reach our customers in the intelligence community and demonstrate the new tools that we have developed in response to their requests for solutions that provide quick and precise methods of obtaining the geospatial information they need.”

Leica Geosystems recently joined the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF). The USGIF is comprised of government, industry, academic and professional organizations and individuals dedicated to promoting the development and application of geospatial intelligence data and resources to address national security objectives. The USGIF Hall of Fame Dinner, recognizing outstanding achievements in the Geospatial Intelligence community, will take place on November 1, 2005 as part of GEOINT 2005.

GEOINT 2005 will feature an exhibition area and various networking opportunities over the course of the four-day event. It will also include speeches from notable leaders in the geospatial intelligence community providing their insight on “Securing Freedom” and “Defeating Threats.”
