Richmond Hill, Ontario – October 20, 2010: PCI Geomatics, a world-leading developer of software and systems for geo-imaging solutions, plans to undertake a business development mission to Africa and the Middle East to meet, train, and interact with local partners and customers and to participate in a key industry event.

PCI Geomatics will begin its mission at the 8th International Conference African Association of Remote Sensing of the Environment (AARSE) in Addis Ababa on October 25-29. PCI will take part in the conference alongside their new reseller, GEOMARK, to raise awareness of PCI products and technology and how they can assist in solving some of the region’s geospatial challenges. This is one of the largest African geo-intelligence events and brings together over 600 participants from over 40 countries.

“We are happy to be a part of the PCI reseller network and are excited that PCI will be joining us at the AARSE event”, said Zelalem Getahun of GEOMARK. “There are pressing geospatial issues facing Africa such as disaster risk reduction and marine and coastal management, and it is important for the market to know that PCI technology can be used successfully in these areas.”

Following the AARSE event, PCI Geomatics will participate in a local reseller meeting on November 1-2 being hosted by GISTEC, PCI’s Master Distributor for the Middle East. This meeting will allow PCI to meet with GISTEC resellers and to present their latest updates and product offerings, such as GeoImaging Tools for ArcGIS®.

“Our African and Middle Eastern partners and customers are of high priority for PCI Geomatics”, said Anne Skinner, Global Channel Manager at PCI Geomatics. “PCI has been a key player in the African and Middle Eastern GIS forestry, mapping, and education markets for years and it is vital that we continue to take an active role in ensuring that partners are given the latest information and timely training and support.”
