JULY 12--DALSA Corporation (Ontario, Canada; www.dalsa.com) has received an order from Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions for high-performance CCD image-sensor chips. The order, worth $2.2 million, will be delivered over the next 15 months.

Intergraph will use the DALSA chips in its Z/I Imaging Digital Mapping Camera. The large-format digital aerial camera system incorporates multiple 7k x 4k (28 million pixels) DALSA CCD image-sensor chips, allowing it to capture highly detailed imagery with proven ground resolutions as small as 1.5 in./pixel.

Intergraph sells the camera to photogrammetry organizations worldwide for planning, engineering, surveying, and mapping. Photogrammetry is the science of using aerial photographs and other remote-sensing imagery to obtain accurate measurements of natural and human-made features on Earth. It forms the basis for Geographic Information Systems and Land Information System studies and endeavors.
