Critchlow Geospatial’s expansion continues

We don’t just add any satellite service provider to our one-stop shop – each one must offer a unique capability that fills a gap that New Zealand needs filled.

So, we are excited about this latest addition to our portfolio, NTT Data and their 3D mapping product, AW3D.

The NTT Data proposition is all about the precise 3D map that covers all global land spaces at a 5 metre resolution, with 0.5 metre resolution available in urban areas. We’ve already put some thought into its application here in New Zealand, but first, it’s important to point out 2 key benefits.

  1. A lead time of only one week and;
  2. Highly competitive pricing (typically 25% of the cost of tailored mapping using aerial photograps).

3D Mapping for New Zealand

It’s likely that if you’re reading this, you work in the realm of geospatial information and technology. We both know very well that technology helps stakeholders understand the complex ideas and information we are putting forward.

Technology that leverages 3D not only makes that easier, it also tells a much more compelling story.
