Aerial imagery firm Nearmap has acquired technology and belongings from Pushpin, an organization that extracts information from 3D fashions to offer roof geometry insights to solar firms.
The technology acquisition permits Nearmap to quickly extract and disseminate roof geometry from its wide-scale 3D fashions and supply a brand new type of location content material to its clients.
“By acquiring Pushpin’s 3D geometry extraction technology and pairing it with our rich data, we bring the best of both worlds together at unprecedented scale,” says Dr. Rob Newman, Nearmap CEO. “Over the past couple of years, we’ve evolved our offering from 2D imagery to a multi-product portfolio, and this acquisition is an important milestone in our approach to continue adding new content types for our customers. This addition aides our company mission by providing 3D geometry data at unmatched speed, thereby changing the way our customers perform their work.”
With this new technology, Nearmap can present a semi-automated calculation and extracted illustration of any roof geometry inside an hour, considerably decreasing turnaround time. The mixture of Nearmap’s 3D content material and Pushpin’s geometry extraction technology permits companies to extra shortly carry out job estimates or decide solar irradiance.
