Trimble has acquired roadside infrastructure asset inventory company Géo-3D of Montreal, Canada in an all-cash transaction. The acquisition extends Trimble’s portfolio of field solutions to include mobile mapping specific to the transportation and utilities market.
Géo-3D’s geo-referenced land videography system rapidly documents images and positioning information to catalog roadside infrastructure, such as road signs, guardrails, light poles and other assets.
With a customer base in Canada, Europe, and the US, Géo-3D products are used by service companies to collect geospatial data by photogrammetry and LIDAR as well as state authorities and municipalities involved in supplying geospatial information.
The acquisition of Géo-3D’s mobile mapping solutions augments Trimble’s existing positioning solutions by providing as-built views of infrastructure assets. By automating roadside asset inventory management, transportation and utility organizations can increase productivity throughout the infrastructure’s life-cycle.
“Géo-3D complements our existing integrated surveying, spatial imaging, site positioning, mapping and GIS, and mobile sapping solutions used in the transportation and utilities industries,” says Ken Spratlin, director for strategy and business development for Trimble. “Our focus is on integrating these solutions to streamline the collection and maintenance of high accuracy as-built drawings for the transportation, civil engineering, utilities and telecommunications industries.”
