Aerial Applications (http://www.aerialapplications.com), an award-winning drone solutions provider specializing in GPU-accelerated data processing, is announcing the release of their new photogrammetry software, Mapware, with a user-focused beta program.
Mapware is a cloud-based software, able to process high-resolution 3D maps, point clouds, and high-quality orthomosaic images at lightning speeds and all within a simple user interface. The easy-to-use system allows users to go from raw data to a usable model in just five steps.
“We want to understand and support entire organizations, from the hyper-techie GIS masters to roles that traditionally haven’t interacted with this kind of data before. By looping them all in, our beta testers get to help us build software that transforms how their companies use 3D modeling,” said Chief Marketing Officer Jeff Brooks. “We believe that nailing the processing and sharing experience will set up entire organizations to leverage our AI down the road.”
Organizations in the Mapware beta program will have free access to 200,000 megapixels of processing credits, 500 GB of hosted storage, and unlimited users. With a mission of making processing solutions more accessible - the software is built to integrate into existing systems and workflows - Mapware’s beta program is structured to be as hands-on and engaging as possible for all users. For access to roughly $2,500-value in free processing, Aerial Applications plans to gather user feedback through weekly surveys, test experiments, and contests.
Aerial Applications has worked with teams across a variety of industries including telecommunications, oil and gas, agriculture, and first response, most notably helping first responder teams on the ground during Hurricanes Florence, Irma, Matthew, and Michael. Last year, Aerial Applications were selected as part of the first cohort of companies in the Verizon 5G First Responder Lab.
“We’ve spent years innovating across the entire tech stack to build powerful solutions for some of the biggest companies on the planet.” said Joe Sullivan, Founder & CEO of Aerial Applications. “This program brings all that technology to a wider audience. The scalability, user insights, and ecosystem that will result are going to be game-changing.”
The Mapware beta program is expected to run three months long. Aerial Applications plans to fully launch the Mapware software with tiered-pricing and custom subscriptions later in 2020.
