Verisk’s GeoInformation Group, a provider of geospatial products, has been folded into Verisk’s Geomni business and renamed Geomni UK.
The addition of Geomni UK to Verisk’s Geomni business will enhance its offering for customers in the UK and Europe, said a statement from Lehi, Utah-headquartered Geomni, which is Verisk’s primary geospatial data and remote sensing business.
Since it was founded in 1998, The GeoInformation Group (now Geomni UK) has been at the forefront of innovation and development to extract information from high-resolution aerial imagery, explained Geomni. The company became part of Verisk in 2016..
Jeff Lewis, Geomni’s COO, said that in the past, Geomni has focused primarily on North America but will now bring its 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 include many blue-chip and key public sector organizations, including Transport for London, Metropolitan Police, Thames Water, and major insurers and telecom organizations.
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, said Geomni, which has a privately owned fleet of aircraft for capturing aerial imagery.
Seppe Cassettari, Geomni UK’s managing director, said the move also will allow his firm to expand to customers throughout Europe.
