Getmapping has launched a flexible camera rental service aimed at aerial survey companies plus a range of technical products and services that can be white labelled by geospatial solution providers.
Aerial survey is a tough business at the mercy of the weather and limited by the seasons. Making the most of available resources is vital to ensure economic operations.To tackle the fluctuation in seasonal demand, Getmapping is launching a range of flexible camera rental options which will help link costs directly to revenue generated. Rental options include access to the latest camera technology, including the Vexel Ultracam Eagle and Visionmap A3 systems.
The options include:
- Standard System Rental - camera system rental for a fixed period for a fixed fee
- Flexible Rental - camera system rental for an agreed duration with a reduced fixed fee, plus a fee per kilometre of data captured
- Pay As You Go - camera system rental on a ‘pay as you go’ (per kilometre captured) basis, subject to minimum targets
- Integrated Solution - camera system rental plus image processing also available as a full ‘pay as you go’ per kilometre solution
“Flexible camera rental makes economic sense for survey companies struggling to meet their data capture targets. We have benefitted from similar arrangements for a number of years and it now seems appropriate to open this out to the wider market." Dave Horner, Managing Director, Getmapping
