Abstract
The world of photogrammetry and reconnaissance has changed dramatically. This could be a short description of what has happened in the past few decades. The fact that Z/I Imaging is entering this market as a new vendor is simply the outcome of what is happening in the world's industry. Key words such as globalization, complexity management, key competence, refocusing, shareholder value, access to new markets, are only a few of the driving factors behind such developments as we see them at Z/I Imaging For most people in the photogrammetry and reconnaissance community, it is still not understandable that a vendor like the Carl Zeiss Photogrammetry and Reconnaissance Division should no longer exist. This paper gives an overview of the way the Carl Zeiss Photogrammetry and Reconnaissance Division has had to go and also shows how Z/I Imaging is positioning itself in the Reconnaissance, GIS and Photogrammetry world It also attempts a view to the midterm future of photogrammetry and reconnaissance as a part of the GIS market.
