Geokosmos is the Major Aerial Surveying Company of the 2014 Olympic Games

GEOKOSMOS has completed a LiDAR project in Krasnodar Krai (Sochi, the host city of the 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, is located in this region). Imeretinskaya lowland and some parts of the extending mountain massif were surveyed by the Company specialists. The project was carried out in the framework of the engineering survey aimed at construction of Olympic objects in the Sochi region. GEOKOSMOS provided the customer with a wide spectrum of output products: a topographic map (1:1000) of the lowland, a topographic map (1:500) of the mountain territory, an orthophoto (pixel size – 0,09 m), digital terrain and surface models as well as textured terrain models.
