Satellite imagery is typically used for map creation in the emerging 5G wireless market. The signal propagation characteristics of 5G cell design require a level of detail and accuracy— especially vertical obstacle height data – that is best met with airborne data. By leveraging its proprietary techniques to extract scalable elevation and land cover information from very high-resolution aerial and satellite imagery, LAND INFO is successfully competing for projects and enjoying high revenue growth in this vertical.
Inc. magazine recently released its 2019 Inc. 5000 list, which ranks private companies according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2015 and 2018, and LAND INFO made the cut.
“LAND INFO’s revenue growth has been driven by multi-year investments in proprietary automated mapping technologies, including object-based image analysis and artificial intelligence, which have positioned us to support the demanding needs of 5G wireless network design,” said LAND INFO president Nick Hubing.
Established in 1993, LAND INFO provides geodata solutions for diverse industries worldwide, including oil and gas, electric utilities, government, visualization/simulation, NGOs, academia, and autonomous vehicle navigation. The Colorado firm has been creating map data sets derived from remotely sensed imagery to support global wireless communications projects for over 20 years.
