Welcome to the Geomatica Python Cookbook!

Welcome to PCI’s Geomatica Python Cookbook. An online resource for Geomatica’s Python Community.

Geomatica’s python library offers geospatial developers and solution providers a powerful set of remote sensing, photogrammetry, image processing, image analysis and information extraction tools.

This cookbook is great for new users looking to familiarize themselves with Geomatica’s python library and common workflows. It is also a great resource for more advanced users, as it contains useful code snippets that can be easily “plugged in” to a python script.
