New Venture Focuses on Image Processing Services and Consulting to the UAS Industry

TORONTO, Ontario, Aug. 30th, 2015—A group of geospatial veterans have identified the need to address the global commercial UAS/drone mapping market and have formed The GPS Group to meet the needs of this rapidly expanding segment within the geospatial and mapping industry.

The GPS Group takes a unique approach to delivering custom image processing services. Many companies are supplying products derived from “black box” solutions that don’t permit operator intervention or incremental editing of the results, The GPS Group goes a step beyond and provides fully customized products and solutions using commercial-grade photogrammetry software products.

“Drones offer a timely, high resolution alternative to conventional imaging platforms and have the ability to get very high quality geospatial information in front of decision makers quickly and affordably,” said Mike Agnes, managing partner of The GPS Group “However, what must also be considered as part of a successful UAS implementation are the techniques and tools used to create those products”

Although The GPS Group is a new company, its founding partners have well-established track records in the industry. Each member of the team brings complementary and extensive geospatial experience to their clientsprojects, including commercial UAS operations, remote sensing + GIS, consulting, and geospatial software solutions.

In addition, the company provides coaching and managed services to meet the unique needs of its target market.

“UAS professionals and those thinking about embracing this technology, with all of its nuances and special needs, require the same level of sophistication, if not more, than the rest of the commercial mapping industry; we strive to provide these services from a single trusted source,” adds John Dobson, partner and technical operations manager at The GPS Group, “ By providing option of managed services, this gives our clients the ability to leverage our expertise and experience at a fraction of the cost of implementing them alone.”

The GPS Group brings a deep understanding of the photogrammetric process and are excited to apply their knowledge to the UAS community. In fact, the partners view their service capabilities and market knowledge as having significant value to anyone seeking to establish a UAS solution within their organizations.

Being a good corporate citizen is also important to the company. Hence, The GPS Group plans to devote a percentage of its available resources to supporting non-profit groups who are seeking to incorporate UAS for the betterment of their organization’s goals.

About The GPS Group:

Every day, The GPS Group helps companies who are seeking to add insight and clarity to the geospatial products they develop for themselves and their clients.
