How Hexagon creates value for mapping and geospatial content industry

Leica CityMapper-2

Geospatial technology for better analytics and location intelligence

In our rapidly changing world, cities, nations and infrastructure must be mapped more frequently than ever before. Hexagon offers solutions to create, manage and analyse digital twins and better visualise, monitor and simulate changes in order to provide the highest quality of life to citizens.

Digital twins and location intelligence

Accurate digital representations of our world play an essential role in creating a sustainable future. Digital twins, 3D models and location intelligence provide a new level of information that is ideal for monitoring ecosystems, simulating changes and making informed choices.

In past years, we have learned just how unpredictable the world is. Having current, rich digital twins, maps and location intelligence at hand enables us to proactively manage emergencies and compare the past with the present to predict the future.

For the most effective analytical results, maps need to be updated regularly. Hexagon's sensor, software, platform and data solutions support the planning of smarter, greener and more livable cities and nations by providing high-productivity tools to enable in-depth analysis.

Hybrid 3D city model 
Cutting-edge sensor technology

Hexagon has more than 100 years of experience in developing, producing and distributing the world's most accurate and innovative mapping and reality capture solutions. You can rely on the productivity of our sensors to capture more data in less time.

Capture entire countries or cities in 2D or 3D from the air to enable map creation, feature extraction and object detection, or collect street-level data to generate highly detailed photorealistic maps of cities. With an extensive global customer support network, we are a trusted partner for service providers worldwide, delivering the most productive imaging and LiDAR mapping solutions.

Democratising access to geospatial data

Hexagon's aerial data program, the HxGN Content Program, offers the most extensive library of aerial imagery, elevation data, 3D models and analytics across North America and Europe. All data is orthorectified, highly accurate and available at multiple resolutions. Exceptional data consistency and flexible use terms make the HxGN Content Program ideal for use in AI and machine learning algorithms to extract features, objects and analytics.

Hexagon's extensive data stack enables state governments, city administrations and infrastructure providers to manage and monitor critical assets, anticipate and mitigate risks, visualise projects, engage citizens and create smarter, more sustainable and livable cities and nations. Tech companies use the data to fuel their applications and create more accurate maps.
