Australian-based spatial information technology provider AAM Group has announced their expansion into India. AAM Group entered a partnership with technology consultant Srinivasa Murthy to create AAM India.
AAM was formed in 1959 as “Australian Aerial Mapping” and is now an international spatial information technology provider. AAM employs almost 500 geospatial professionals and a fleet of custom equipped aircraft operating across Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia and Africa.
“Joining hands with Mr. Murthy and creating AAM India furthers our aspirations and capabilities in Asia, with offices in India, Singapore and Malaysia,” said Mark Freeburn, CEO of AAM Group. “The new entity will focus its energies to provide excellence in data acquisition, processing and delivery across the geospatial spectrum.”
“We will provide 3D City models, similar to the AAM produced models for Singapore, Sydney and Hong Kong, to broad area geospatial information at a state wide level to assist with infrastructure, urban design planning, and the National Land Records Modernisation Programme. We plan to work with other Indian geospatial companies to provide a new level of technology to support India’s growth”.
Outlining the plans going forward for the entity, Mr. Srinivasa Murthy, President and Executive Director AAM India said, “given the focus on smart city planning, infrastructure development, and land record modernisation by the Indian government, we are looking at a huge growth opportunity. I have assembled a team combining the top management of SkyeITS, the technology business I founded 6 years ago, with some of the best talent available in the Indian spatial community.”
