South African based geospatial services company Geomatica has re-launched as GeoM following a major evolution in its business. The company, which specialises both in airborne and terrestrial laser scanning  projects, has made a significant investment in new laser scanning hardware, recruited experienced professionals and undertaken a complete marketing  makeover.  GeoM is responding to market demands in southern Africa for  an end to end service provider with experience in all aspects of data capture, processing and delivery.

“The domestic and international markets  are changing rapidly and we could no longer remain complacent with our current  service offering portfolio,” commented newly appointed Chief Executive Officer,  Dean Polley. “By investing in new equipment, new people, a new office, new name  and a new look we can offer a complete ‘earth to sky’ laser measurement  capability including some soon to be announced leading edge  innovations.”

GeoM is the leading South African service provider of  airborne laser mapping solutions; specialising in vegetation management  services, power line and tower infrastructure maintenance and management to the  electrical
transmission industry. GeoM also offers a range of mapping and  surveying services to the mining industry including stock-pile volume surveys,  open cast mine mapping and safety monitoring.

GeoM can acquire  LiDAR, Orthophotos, Oblique images, UV, IR, HD video imagery and hyperspectral  data from a range of platforms including standard survey aircraft, helicopters  and gyrocopters as well as terrestrial and mobile
solutions. GeoM has completed  projects across the African region including road surveys in Botswana, quarry  mapping in South Africa and a deep sea port project in Cameroon.

The company has undergone a marketing makeover launching a new  corporate identity including logo and website and will shortly move into purpose  built office accommodation within the prestigious Oxford Office Park development
in Highveld Techno Park, Centurion.

“These are exciting times both  for GeoM and the laser mapping market in this region,” added Polley. “GeoM is  now ideally placed to move forward with addressing demanding market  expectations.”
