What do you like best?

I like geomatics because it allows you to represent reality in a precise and detailed way but also to create and control everything that you are able to define in the design phase and / or during all construction phases. And in doing this it interacts with many other aspects, ways of designing and visualizing reality (such as BIM design or VR / AR technology). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the unexpressed potential of geomatics and the not yet fluid connection with other related technologies. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With geomatics it is possible to collect a large amount of data in a short time and with even millimeter accuracies, thanks to the combination of the different methods of survey and data post-processing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Geomatica is the image-oriented application that combines remote sensing, GIS, cartography and photogrammetry into a single environment. The installation of Geomatica was very simple, PCI’s proprietary PCIDSK file format is useful in bringing together multi-source information about your coverage area, making it easier for you to manipulate your data for analysis and keep things organized. Software is cheaper than other software in general. The application has fast and more automation workflows. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
