The Denver Business Journal has named LAND INFO Worldwide Mapping LLC one of the fastest growing private companies in the Denver area. LAND INFO achieved 226 percent growth from 2016 to 2018 to make the 2019 Denver Fast 50 list.
President Nick Hubing (center above with Chris Lowe, left, director image analysis;and David Steveley, right, director business development) credits the rapid growth to an increased demand from the 5G wireless market and the company’s ability to provide customized mapping services for a variety of applications.
Since 1993, LAND INFO has generated map datasets from remotely sensed imagery for the oil and gas, electric utilities, telecommunications, government, visualization/simulation, NGOs, academic, and autonomous vehicle markets.
Investments in object-based image analysis and artificial intelligence enables LAND INFO to meet diverse mapping needs and create custom solutions for specific industries, as well as for individual clients within those sectors, the company says. The firm’s employees average 22 years in the geospatial industry, many of them having worked for some of the largest and best-known providers of satellite and airborne image data worldwide.
The global telecommunications market is an example where the 5G wireless network designers have exacting geospatial data needs that are rapidly evolving. LAND INFO uses proprietary techniques to quickly extract scalable elevation and land cover information from very high-resolution aerial imagery for 5G cell design which requires a level of detail and accuracy— especially vertical obstacle height data – that is best met with airborne data.
In August 2019, LAND INFO was honored by Inc. Magazine and named among the fastest-growing private companies in the United States.
