Turning imagery into useful information, such as through data visualization or geo-spatial analysis, is a new and emerging field bringing together the information, communication and media sectors.
Companies can provide such services on behalf of environmental, agricultural, security and intelligence, aerospace & defense, and satellite receiving and transmitting station operators.
Toronto-based PCI Geomatics is an example; it develops hardware/software systems for geo-imaging solutions, including remote sensing, digital photogrammetry, spatial analysis, cartographic production, automated production systems, image management, on demand mapping solutions and geospatial Web conferencing
The company recently received confirmation of some $200 million in funding for the Strategic Aerospace and Defence Initiative (SADI) from the federal government and Industry Minister Tony Clement, who also announced a $7.6-million repayable investment in support of a research and development (R&D) project being undertaken by PCI Geomatics to develop next-generation earth observation technologies.
Now, the company has appointed Terry Moloney to the position of Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer to help in the company’s development.
Moloney brings over 20 years of industry and executive leadership experience to the role. As PCI Geomatics continues its global growth, he will ensure operations management evolves to meet the requirements of the industry, the company describes, and will spearhead the continued expansion of PCI Geomatics into new international markets.
“I am pleased to have someone with Terry’s expertise and dedication as part of the PCI Geomatics team,” said Dr. Robert Moses, President and CEO of PCI Geomatics, in a release. “He is a valuable asset to the organization and will help us to accelerate PCI’s progression and expansion into new vertical markets.”
Moloney has extensive work experience in the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing industries. Prior to joining PCI Geomatics, he served in various capacities, including Chief Operating Officer and Vice President of Operations and Administration of TYDAC Research Inc.
PCI Geomatics is a privately held Canadian corporation headquartered in Toronto with worldwide facilities: Gatineau, Quebec, Canada; Arlington, Virginia, United States; Redlands, California, United States; Edinburgh, Scotland; Pune and New Delhi, India; and Beijing, China.
