Getmapping Opens Office as Lidar Centre - 10/04/2013


As part of its continued expansion into Africa, Geosense, Getmapping’s wholly owned subsidiary in South Africa, has opened a new office in Centurion in the Gauteng province. The office will be the new centre of flight operations and the focus of the company’s extensive Lidar capability. Getmapping now has three offices in Africa, situated in Cape Town, Centurion and Nairobi.

Getmapping has built up extensive Lidar capabilities in South Africa to complement its existing large format digital camera capabilities, and provides a full survey service to their customers, especially in the mining and power transmission sectors, said Dave Horner, managing director of Getmapping. It makes sense for the company to base its Lidar and the flight operations in an area where most of the mining and power transmission customers are based.

Getmapping’s Cape Town office will continue as the production centre for much of their processing and analytical work for both Africa and the UK, and to service the customers in the Western Cape Area.
