Verisk’s GeoInformation Group, an award-winning provider of detailed geospatial information, based in Linton, is now part of Verisk’s Geomni business and has been renamed Geomni UK.
The addition of Geomni UK to Verisk’s Geomni business will enable the company to offer even more competitive solutions to customers in the UK and Europe, while continuing to develop innovative products focusing on aerial imagery and machine learning.
Since it was founded in 1998, The GeoInformation Group has been at the forefront of innovation and development to extract information from high-resolution aerial imagery. The company became part of Verisk in 2016, where it has continued to create unique and valuable geospatial products.
As Geomni UK, it will be a natural addition to Geomni, Verisk’s primary geospatial data and remote sensing business. Geomni has a privately-owned fleet of 80 aircraft for capturing aerial imagery and is headquartered in the United States in Lehi, Utah.
“We’re excited to officially welcome The GeoInformation Group, now Geomni UK, into the Geomni family,” said Jeff Lewis, Geomni’s Chief Operating Officer. “In the past, Geomni has focused primarily on the North American market. We look forward to bringing our remote sensing and machine learning technologies to the UK and Europe.”
Geomni UK products include UKMap, a detailed database of Greater London; UKBuildings, a national building classification; and UKLand, a national land-use database. Customers comprise many blue-chip and key public sector organisations, including Transport for London, the Metropolitan Police, Thames Water, and major insurers and telecom organisations.
Geomni UK data has recently been supplied to help plan 5G network rollout. In addition to its work in the UK, Geomni UK flew over the greater Paris metropolitan area in 2018 and captured vertical and oblique imagery, including the recently devastated Notre Dame Cathedral.
Geomni UK’s Managing Director Seppe Cassettari comments, “Our UK customers can now benefit from the significant global resources, scale, and unique technology offered by Geomni. The enhanced capabilities and resources will also allow us to expand our services to customers throughout Europe.”
Geomni UK will attend the leading UK geospatial events during 2019 and present at the Verisk Vision 2019 conference in London on the 19th June. For further information on the company and its products and services please visit www.geomni.co.uk or call the team on 01223 891 700.
