Paris, 14th January 2010 - AeroGRID has in the last month signed up three new partners to further increase its impressive coverage of high resolution aerial photography. Geomatics of Greece, MapSoft of Serbia and Ofek of Israel, all leading suppliers in their respective countries have joined the AeroGRID consortium.
Geomatics’ activities cover aerial photography and mapping, geospatial data collection and processing, consulting services and applications development. Its high calibre scientific and technical personnel combined with investment in new technologies and state of the art equipment enables the company to undertake the most complex projects. Geomatics is one of the largest and most respected firms in Greece with an extensive collection of high resolution urban photography and mid resolution orthophotos covering several areas and highways of the country.
MapSoft are the leading aerial survey company in Serbia who offer a full range of associated services ranging from photogrammetry to DTM production. MapSoft also has its own mapping portal. They bring aerial coverage of the major urban centres and 30% of Serbian territory.
For more than 20 years Ofek Aerial Photography Ltd has been a leader in geospatial applications, focusing on aerial survey, orthophoto production and high resolution satellite imagery. Ofek also produces its own application software including MultiVision, a unique environment for viewing both vertical and oblique imagery. OFEK has full countrywide cover of Israel including high resolution cover of the major cities.
Partners can sell AeroGRID data within their own markets while their imagery is made available for purchase via the AeroGRID catalogue. New partners with consequential datasets from all over the world are welcome to join in extending what is already the world’s largest commercial high resolution aerial imagery data catalogue.
“Geomatics, Mapsoft and Ofek join a growing list of AeroGRID partners who are each a significant force in their own markets” said Miles Taylor, General Manager. “Our role is to make all this imagery available to the multinational audience much of it via our online Geoshop, thereby making the procurement of worldwide high resolution aerial imagery much more convenient and cost effective,” continued Taylor.
