Valtus Announces Significant New Coverage in Southern Alberta Now On-Line PDF Print E-mail
Written by Valtus   
03 May 2007
Calgary, Alberta May 2, 2007 - Valtus Imagery Services, a division of North West Geomatics Ltd. announced today that its imagery library in southern Alberta has been updated.

Approximately 650 townships or 65,000 km2 covering all of southern Alberta is now on-line. The imagery, collected in the summer of 2006, is 40cm true colour ortho and was collected with the Leica ADS40 sensor.

 The Valtus Imagery Services online database currently holds over 2 million square kilometers of high resolution imagery across Canada and the United States . Valtus provides annual subscriptions to seamlessly stream imagery directly into GIS and CAD Desktop Applications. In addition, Valtus hosts imagery on behalf of our customers allowing for wide distribution of reliable imagery web services.

 “We continue to update the Valtus data base with newer and higher resolution imagery. This large program is the beginning of a systematic update program for our entire data base. And based on direction from our customers. All new imagery added to the library will be 50cm or better resolution based on feedback from our customers. This update program has begun in the south and will continue north in 2007 and beyond. The 2007 acquisition campaign will also be the first to utilize the new Leica ADS40-II sensor. This second generation technology provides higher quality imagery and a wider range of potential deliverables to our customers”, says Tim Crago , Vice President of Valtus Imagery Services. “All of North West ’s ADS40 imagery sensors have been upgraded to this second generation technology and will be deployed for the 2007 acquisition program”.
The higher resolution imagery being collected by North West is being supported with a higher density auto-correlated digital surface model to facilitate the newer imagery. In subsequent years, North West ’s LiDAR DEM will be used for the rectification process.
