Infrastructure teams unlock data for certainty during early-stage planning

Sensat Teams Up with Bluesky for Rapid Aerial Data Access

December 19, 2023

London, UK - 19, December 2023: Sensat, the cutting-edge data visualisation and collaboration platform, announces a strategic partnership with Bluesky International, a leading aerial survey and geographic data company. This alliance will empower civil infrastructure teams to expedite data access during planning, facilitating more informed decision-making.

In the initial stages of infrastructure planning, teams often need help with tight timelines, leading to challenges in collecting and accessing the most up-to-date information. Traditionally, teams have relied on on-site surveys, which prove time-consuming or resorted to outdated information on platforms like Google Earth. The disparities between the planned data and the real-world environment frequently result in suboptimal decision-making, resulting in a rework and increased costs.

Sensat and Bluesky's partnership addresses these challenges by merging rapid data collection methods and advanced visualisation capabilities. This innovative approach enables teams to access current datasets early in planning, eliminating the need for traditional, costly surveys and outdated decision-making. Teams can seamlessly overlay their plans onto real-world contexts, ensuring that decisions made from day one of the planning process are based on the most up-to-date and accurate information.

Embracing this cutting-edge partnership will facilitate proactive issue identification and allow for better decision-making from the outset.

"Data access is a significant challenge in civil infrastructure. Whereas before, we relied on lengthy surveys, today, with state-of-the-art data capture and visualisation technologies at our fingertips, teams can make the best decisions from the get-go. Our partnership with Bluesky aligns perfectly with our shared values regarding data access. Bluesky provides the data, and we can open it up for teams to make sense of much faster than traditional means," said George Dey, Head of Data Partnerships at Sensat. 

Ralph Coleman, Chief Commercial Officer at Bluesky added: "Bluesky is proud to embark on this transformative partnership with Sensat. Data capture and visualisation are the other half of the same coin. By seamlessly integrating our up-to-date, accurate geospatial data with Sensat's visualisation platform, we empower civil infrastructure teams to break free from traditional survey methods' time and cost constraints. Together, we can provide a solution that accelerates data access, setting a new standard for efficiency and accuracy in planning."
