NACKA STRAND, Sweden — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 10, 2016 — Hexagon AB (STO: HEXAB), a leading global provider of information technologies that drive productivity and quality across geospatial and industrial enterprise applications, will showcase its geospatial solutions at INTERGEO, the global hub for the geospatial community, starting today at the Messe in Hamburg, Germany.
Hexagon’s technologies encompass the complete geospatial information life cycle – from data capture to industry-specific information delivery. Its portfolio includes sensors for capturing data from land and air, as well as sensors for positioning via satellites. The sensors are complemented by a range of software applications and solutions that enable data processing, interpretation and analysis for more informed decision making in industries such as surveying, construction and agriculture.
Hexagon’s solutions support multiple sources of content coupled with innovative apps and on-premise enterprise solutions that change the way we communicate meaningful analytics. They not only display the world as it is, but model the world as it will be. The main focus from Hexagon at INTERGEO will be reality-capture solutions and delivering geospatial information in a way that facilitates mission- and business-critical decision making from urban planning to utility mapping. The newest technologies within Hexagon’s expansive geospatial offerings will be on display and available for hands-on demonstrations.
“Every year, INTERGEO provides the opportunity to meet and interact with geospatial professionals from around the world and learn more about the challenges they are facing,” said Hexagon President and CEO Ola Rollén. “At Hexagon, we take away this valuable information to develop solutions that help our customers evolve, combining key automation with user relevant workflows that improve productivity and quality to move their businesses forward.”
