Boulder, CO, USA • January 27, 2020
Geospan, a geospatial mapping and property data analytics company, announced a strategic partnership with Vexcel Imaging, an industry leader providing rich aerial imagery and geospatial data using best-in-class cameras and sensor technology.
This multi-year partnership brings Vexcel’s extensive nationwide image library into Geospan’s patent pending technology platform. Combining innovative tech with robust aerial data, customers are equipped with remote GIS services, such as the ability to perform aerial measurement, develop valuation change detection, extrapolate 4D structure models, and review 4D Geospatial analytics.
“In today’s world, local tax authorities and markets such as insurance, mortgage, contractor, and real estate are all rapidly accelerating toward remote servicing technology. Partnering with Vexcel gives Geospan customers masterful high-resolution imagery coverage on a national scale,” said Andrew Zickell, CEO Geospan.
“We value our partnership with Geospan and look forward to providing accurate and remote-ready geospatial solutions for customers at scale,” said Jerene Dekate, SVP of Business Development at Vexcel Imaging. "Our imagery library goes back years, and remains up-to-date, consistent and true. These are all crucial elements to providing better insights, better property and time tracking, and better data for AI applications.”
By leveraging Vexcel’s high-resolution imagery and extensive nationwide coverage, Geospan can more accurately provide valuation change detection, improved measurement, and streamlined property identification services. Geospan’s GeoAssist Valuation Change Detection solution delivers current and historical information on building structures to tax authorities allowing them to analyze, verify and assess from their desktop. Using Vexcel imagery, GeoAssist provides county assessors not only change detection, but also a true parcel audit of structures existing on their tax records.
Vexcel captures and provides aerial data in a variety of formats, including wide-area ortho (20cm) across the contiguous U.S.; urban oblique (5-7.5cm) for 900+ cities and covering 80% of the U.S. population; multi-spectral imagery; and digital surface models (DSM).
