Toronto, Canada, January 4, 2010: Optech Incorporated, the world’s leading manufacturer of advanced lidar survey instruments, is pleased to announce expanded support of the DiMAC Ultralight+ 60 megapixel medium-format digital mapping camera.

Available for the entire suite of Optech Airborne Laser Terrain Mappers (ALTM™), the new DiMAC cameras will be fully supported by Optech Services, the 24/7 software and hardware support team.
