senseFly and Maptek partner on drone mining solution
Swiss professional drone maker, senseFly, has joined forces with Maptek, experts in precision measurement and visualisation for the mining industry, to sign a new commercial agreement that enables Maptek to offer its customers a full, end-to-end data collection and analysis solution.
Under the terms of the agreement, Maptek will begin providing its customers with senseFly’s professional mapping and inspection drones (eBee, eBee RTK and albris) alongside its popular I-Site Studio 3Dmodelling software.
Maptek and senseFly’s agreement will roll out immediately across North America. Worldwide expansion of the deal is expected to follow soon thereafter.
“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 not only survey requirements, but the in-depth modelling, change detection and data output requirements demanded by mining professionals,” said Todd Packebush, Maptek’s Director of I-Site Sales / Business Development.
“senseFly’s 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,” added Jean-Christophe Zufferey, senseFly’s 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.”
