iXblue Sea Operations and Woolpert have joined forces to provide aerial mapping services across Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.
The news comes after iXblue launched its Brisbane-based aerial services division in July, and appears set to bolster the capability in services that both firms offer.
“We are looking forward to working with iXblue, which has established itself as a highly respected data provider in the region, and to extend our geographic reach,” said John Gerhard, Woolpert’s director of Maritime Solutions.
“By playing to our firms’ combined strengths, our clients will receive this highly accurate, highly requested mapping data at a lower cost.”
The two will work together on collecting and processing digital imagery, and topographic and bathymetric LiDAR products from fixed wing and helicopter platforms.
iXblue’s marine survey business has been operating in the region since 2007 and recently added its aerial services. Woolpert has collected and processed bathymetric LiDAR data and orthoimagery for clients such as the U.S. Geological Survey, the U.S. Army Corps and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency.
