Z/I imaging DMCII / 250

APEI owns and uses a varied number of digital cameras to adapt to the constraints of the acquisition projects.

This camera has a variety of applications by combining the different project parameters like ground resolution (from very high resolution 2.5cm/pixel to low resolution 50cm/pixel), the area of interest (small a country whole), overlaps and spectral bands.

APEI acquired new camera Z/I Imaging in April 2012 with constant efforts to consistently offer the best service to its customers.

At constant GSD, the camera DMCII/250 is less penalized by flight restrictions than its competitors. Moreover its specifications allow to significantly reduce building leaning.






The head of the panchromatic camera contains a 250 Megapixel monolithic sensor, the largest CCD available to obtain a geometric and radiometric accuracy ever reached, the monolithic sensor removing all operations of "stitching".

The new lens developed by Carl Zeiss 112mm focal length associated with a 5.6μm pixel size achieves a 2cm / pixel ground resolution (GSD).


High productivity

The 16768 by 14016 pixels sensor offers two main advantages:

  • A wide swatch which reduces the fly cost
  • Fewer images that can lighten : preparation of control for stereoplotting, aerotraingulation and mainly less seamlines works

Building leaningcapteurs-aeroportes

When your project requires a maximum building leaning, the DMCII/250 allows you to optimize the sidelap and reduce the fly time and cost of acquisition. In the end, this sensor also allows for lessimages with a GSD and building leaning equal.
