Bathymetric survey outfit iXblue has announced new aerial mapping capabilities for its Sea Operations division, now available in the Asia-Pacific region.
The Brisbane-based subsidiary of the French iXblue group has been operating marine surveying services for Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific since 2007.
Its Sea Operations division now offers aerial mapping services including topographic LiDAR, bathymetric LiDAR and digital imagery products from fixed-wing and helicopter platforms to complement its surface and subsea survey capabilities.
Managing director Dave Donohue said: “The diversification in capability to include aerial mapping operations alongside our marine survey business complements the growing demand from our clients to offer seamless products from our hydrographic and topographic mapping operations.”
The new aerial services division will be led by Matthew James, who previously held positions with Fugro and Esri.
