By Emily Aasand | January 08, 2015

Measure, a drone data services provider, and PrecisionHawk have joined forces to provide unmanned aircraft system (UAS) services to allow clients to have quicker, simpler and more affordable access to aerial data gathering and analysis through Measure’s services.

“As the industry expands, companies are looking for a comprehensive solution to fit into their existing workflow. This extends far beyond a hardware program,” said Christopher Dean, PrecisionHawk CEO. “In partnering with Measure, we can collectively engage with global clientele in an advisory and operational capacity to ensure users see a return on their investment.”

Both companies provide solutions tailored for commercial clients including oil and gas companies, utilities, farmers, insurers, mining companies, wildlife conservationists, public safety professionals, filmmakers and others.

“PrecisionHawk’s analytical software, among the most sophisticated in the world, is a critical tool for clients who need powerful near real time data processing capabilities,” said Brandon Declet, CEO and co-founder of Measure. “As a Measure partner, we plan on integrating the DataMapper software solution with select clients through our Drone as a Service offering.”

PrecisionHawk’s DataMapper software recently expanded its cloud-based platform to ingest data collected by a wider network of unmanned aircraft vehicle providers. The application is able to upload, store, process and share aerial imagery and is capable of detailed, automated analysis.

The data collected is transferred into the cloud for processing and is accessible via an online login on a desktop, tablet or mobile device, the company said. Once the data is processed, the user receives a notification that their data is ready. “Upon login, users can manage their data, or ingest their data into any GIS software,” said Kyle Hirano, DataMapper communication director.
