Since our inception in 1956, MJ Harden has always strived to incorporate the best, most cutting-edge technology possible into the services we offer to our customers

MJ Harden Associates, Inc., a photogrammetric mapping provider in Mission, Kansas, has acquired a second Intergraph® Digital Mapping Camera (DMC®) to deliver high-quality aerial imagery to its fast-growing customer base.

"Since our inception in 1956, MJ Harden has always strived to incorporate the best, most cutting-edge technology possible into the services we offer to our customers," said Michael Flynn, operations manager at MJ Harden Associates, Inc. "We acquired our first Intergraph DMC in 2004. The camera is unmatched in its image resolution and accuracy as well as multispectral capabilities, and as a result we have decided to implement a second DMC to support the recent growth of our geospatial services business."

"As a company that prides itself on being an early adopter of advanced technologies, MJ Harden's selection of not one, but two, Intergraph DMC systems serves as a testament to the industry-leading quality of Intergraph's image acquisition technology," said Klaus Neumann, camera systems product manager for Intergraph.

The DMC will be used by MJ Harden in conjunction with Intergraph's ImageStation photogrammetric processing software for the creation of orthophotos, geographic information system (GIS) data and maps.

MJ Harden's services are utilized by a wide range of industries including federal, state and local government, utilities, engineering, forestry, transportation, telecommunications, agriculture and emergency response.

Intergraph is a pioneer in photogrammetry and image acquisition. The DMC was the industry's first large-format frame digital aerial camera, the first to be certified by the United States Geological Survey and the first to offer an innovative Solid State Disk (SSD) storage technology to decrease camera weight and footprint.
