ASG Mapping Ltd was founded in 2012 to cater to a dramatic change in the geomatics industry from a mostly two-dimensional world to 3D and 4D. This shift is facilitated by the maturity and availability of technologies such as laser scanning, close-range photogrammetry, and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). This shift is also precipitated by the acceptance and growth of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in the engineering and architecture industries and GeoDesign in GIS and planning.
Using UAVs, commonly known as drones, ASG Mapping collects aerial imagery to produce standard products including orthomosaics, Digital Surface Model (DSM), and Point Cloud data sets. Value-added products include Digital Elevation Model (DEM), Classified Point Cloud, 3D visualization/flythrough, Remote Sensing Interpretation/Analysis, and Feature Extraction. The company uses a whole UAV workflow from mission/project planning to data processing.
As a start-up, ASG Mapping Ltd leverages its geomatics expertise by developing working relationships with technology-driven companies that develop systems suitable for use in geomatics.
