Aerial mapping company Bluesky International has opened a specialist photogrammetry production facility in Northern Ireland. Based in Coleraine, County Londonderry, the new centre is home to a highly skilled and experienced workforce. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology the Coleraine office is responsible for the production and management of Bluesky’s advanced 3D city models, stereoscopic aerial photography products and bespoke topographic map projects.
The newly opened Coleraine office builds on a period of significant expansion by Bluesky, whose international network already includes offices in England, the Republic of Ireland (EIRE) and the US, production facilities in the UK and India and flying bases in the UK, Ireland and America.
“Northern Ireland has a long history of high-end aerial survey and mapping and therefore we have been fortunate to be able to recruit highly experienced photogrammetrists” commented Rachel Tidmarsh, Managing Director of Bluesky International.
“The addition of this experienced team to our existing international production capacity will, we hope, improve already high standards across our workflows and will help drive further innovation in production methodology and new product development” she continued.
With the new production facility based close to the University of Ulster’s Coleraine campus, home to the School of Geography and Environmental Sciences, Bluesky hopes to build strong relationships with the academic community. It anticipates this will further drive research and innovation in both surveying techniques and mapping outcomes.
