New Delhi: GIS software provider Esri India and ideaForge, an unmanned aircraft systems provider have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). The objective of this tie-up is to boost the adoption of drones in India.
The tie-up between Esri India and ideaForge will allow users to deploy drone solutions with GIS to solve complex problems in AEC, forestry, agriculture, mining, transportation, utilities, and defence.
The users will also be able to achieve seamless integration of drone videos and photos for advanced GIS applications, establish SOPs and standard workflows, and develop solutions for imagery, live streaming, and more.
The alliance will also help enterprises and government agencies to meet their essential drone-based requirements, both in terms of drone flying and GIS. This will reduce the complexity of engaging multiple vendors and foster higher adoption of drones in India, bringing multiple solution components under one umbrella.
“Esri India’s partnership with ideaForge will help drone users benefit from such integrated solutions, including drones and GIS, curated by the leaders in their respective fields. The bundled solution will help the users to achieve time and cost-effectiveness in their drone data collection, processing, and analysis efforts. We aim to also provide extensive support in training,” said Agendra Kumar, MD of Esri India.
