Company Profile

Launched in 2015.

We derive ground motion information using advanced analytics and big data approaches to process global satellite data sources.

We have a growing range of clients across the planning, insurance, engineering and land management markets.

To become the world’s leading provider of remote, ubiquitous, high-precision ground surface movement data and services.
