Drone maker senseFly and Maptek, an Australia-based mining software company, have signed an agreement that enables Maptek to offer senseFly’s mapping and inspection drones to its customers.
The agreement will roll out in North America immediately; worldwide expansion is expected to follow thereafter.
“senseFly durable, largely automated mapping drones are already employed by thousands of professionals, such as mining engineers, around the world, who appreciate the productivity and safety boosting benefits of collecting geospatial data from the air,” said Jean-Christophe Zufferey, senseFly CEO. “By partnering with Maptek we are joining forces with one of the industry’s most respected and recognised solution providers, a company that is perfectly positioned to help bring such benefits to even more mining professionals.”
The combination of drones with Maptek’s I-Site Studio 3D modelling software will allow Maptek to offer mine sites a full end-to-end data collection and analysis solution, the company said in a statement.
“By combining a senseFly UAV with our I-Site Studio 3D modelling software, customers in the mining industry now have a powerful solution that is driven by survey requirements, as well as the in-depth modelling, change detection and data output requirements demanded by mining professionals,” said Todd Packebush, Maptek Director of I-Site Sales & Business Development.
