ERDAS: Back to the Future

The big news today is that Leica Geosystems Geospatial Imaging (LGGI) has been reborn as ERDAS. Check out www.erdas.com for the new look of the web-site. Joe Francica from Directions Magazine was here last week and wrote an in-depth article on the name change and plans moving forward.

So what does this mean for all the Leica-oriented product names??? Well, as you can see from the new web-site, the Leica name has been replaced with ERDAS (e.g. Leica Image Manager becomes ERDAS Image Manager). For Leica Photogrammetry Suite, we decided to just turn it into "LPS". Since our photogrammetry technology is tightly coupled to the sensor world where the Leica brand has a lot of value, it made sense to keep our link to our heritage with LH Systems, Leica Geosystems, and so forth.

Overall, an exciting development - it is great to be able to bring back one of the most recognizable names in the geospatial industry!
