Swiss professional drone maker senseFly signed an agreement with Maptek, experts in precision measurement and visualization for the mining industry, that enables Maptek to offer its customers a full, end-to-end data collection and analysis solution. Under the terms of the agreement, Maptek will begin providing North American customers in mining and aggregates industries with senseFly’s professional mapping and inspection drones (eBee, eBee RTK and albris) alongside its popular I-Site Studio 3D modelling software.

“By combining a senseFly UAV with our I-Site Studio 3D modelling software, customers in the mining industry now have a powerful solution that is driven by survey requirements, as well as the in-depth modelling, change detection and data output requirements demanded by mining professionals,” said Todd Packebush, Maptek Director of I-Site Sales & Business Development.

“senseFly durable, largely automated mapping drones are already employed by thousands of professionals, such as mining engineers, around the world, who appreciate the productivity and safety boosting benefits of collecting geospatial data from the air,” added Jean-Christophe Zufferey, senseFly CEO. “By partnering with Maptek we are joining forces with one of the industry’s most respected and recognized solution providers, a company that is perfectly positioned to help bring such benefits to even more mining professionals.”
