Hexagon Acquires 3D City Modelling Pioneer GTA Geoinformatik GmbH Print E-mail
Written by Hexagon   
Monday, 03 December 2012

Hexagon AB, leading global provider of design, measurement and visualisation solutions, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the business of GTA Geoinformatik GmbH, a pioneer in georeferenced virtual 3D city models and highly efficient building reconstructions.

Founded in 1995, GTA Geoinformatik is the developer of tridicon®software, which enables the automatic generation of high-quality, coloured 3D point clouds. The company also specialises in uniting point cloud data with aerial images including oblique and LiDAR images to create intelligent, navigable 3D city models, or smart cities.

“The idea of creating a smart city has been an important part of Hexagon’s geospatial vision to merge maps with information and real-time updates,” said Hexagon President and CEO Ola Rollén. “Solutions such as those GTA Geoinformatik delivers are becoming increasingly important, as they build the foundation for industry-specific applications in areas of city development such as security, traffic, infrastructure management, energy and emergency response.”

GTA Geoinformatik, based in Berlin and Neubrandenburg, Germany, will be fully consolidated as of end of November. The acquisition will not have any visible impact on Hexagon's earnings in the short-term.
