Emerging as one of the leading indigenous UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) mapping analysis and planning companies at this confluence is Aerial Geomatics, carving out a niche for itself in UAV engineering, integration with GIS solutions, aerial photogrammetry, and spatial data management. Founded in the year 2020 in Bangalore, Aerial Geomatics started out small scale. The company then went on to initiate the geospatial and GIS analytical works in the field of biomining, for the Government of Karnataka’s ULBs (Urban Local Bodies). Aerial Geomatics also undertook integrated farming lands and parcels, and asset mapping for leading automobile industrial assets, as well as for a few assets of the Government of Tamil Nadu.
Unique Selling Proposition / Competitive Advantage:
The company works in four different key teams. The UAV team consists of ground force men, remote pilots, and surveyors. The processing tech team has cloud architects and a processing tech manager. The GIS analysis team consists of a technical team that can handle historical maps, land classifications, land cover, utility maps, watersheds, utility mapping, and heat maps. In the mapping and experts’ team, the company has experienced planners, urban designers, architects, and geologists.
“Aerial Geomatics plays a unique role in the field of GIS and UAV mapping industry, which allows them to provide superior value to clients at an affordable price and quality. Their R&D indicates there are six successful ways to differentiate product in-time, service in quality, channels of distribution, relationships, reputation/image, and price,”
The UAV mapping and GIS market are poised for an even wider-scale adoption than what was seen in recent decades, as more organizations learn how much business value can come from geospatial data and data processing.
As trends like data analytics, mobility, AR, and IoT continue to take off around the world, photogrammetry, geographic information science, and technology can be expected not only to be transformed but also to help change the way organizations utilize these technologies.
