We have a very specialised and hybrid business that encompasses two complementary technical professions : aviation and Topography. IMAO grew up with a family of experts in each activity:
ON THE GROUND
Our teams are versatile and able to respond to the most challenging projects in difficult conditions. On the ground, they have a perfect knowledge of the aerial sensors and the processing from flight planning to flight execution. They are experts who can analyse each project’s specifcations and provide cost-efective solutions that can include a range of products bundled with quality service. They are surveyors, engineers, geophysicians...
IN THE AIR
Our aircrews are highly experienced in conducting complex aerial survey missions with a good knowledge of the post-processing and production procedures of their captured airborne data. They can be able to analyse and change the flight strategy and characteristics adapting to the mission environment progress. Our pilots are competent to operate each of our sensors, download and do the first quality controls over the data.
Our Research & Development team is constantly working to optimise and improve our products and services using the latest methods and state-of-the art technology (B66-Extra large format camera, UBICK-3D models library, Quality controls tools…). This synergy is what characterises IMAO today with a staf of 27 professionals in geospatial. Constantly growing, IMAO is developing itself around the globe through a commercial presence in every continent.
Everything is based in a same passion about our planet, its measurement, its analysis and its respect. That's why we are all engaged every day in an environmental plan in order to reduce the carbon emissions due to our activity.
Earth is our home, and we have to cherish it.
