Montreal, Canada, April 27, 2009 – SimActive Inc., a world-leading developer of software solutions for the generation of geospatial data, is pleased to announce the acquisition of its Correlator3D™ product by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). SimActive’s software will be primarily used by DNR for forest inventory from aerial imagery.

“Correlator3D will allow us to automatically process large volumes of images and to create geospatial data such as DSM”, said Anick Patry from the Forest Inventory Division of DNR. “The ability to easily generate detailed land information will greatly facilitate the job of our photo interprets, increasing our productivity while reducing the associated costs.”
