Japan: To deliver a i-Construction-compliant drone mapping and photogrammetry solution for the Japanese market, Pix4D has partnered with Kokusai Kogyo Corporation (KKC), a Japan-based geospatial consulting company. i-Construction is a set of government-defined regulations to govern the collection and processing of drone data.
In August 2016, KKC released a 3D geospatial analysis cloud service (KKC-3D). The partnership will jointly develop the service and new features to meet the requirements for public surveying and i-Construction standards.
Japanese customers will only have to upload acquired images as well as the location information of the ground control points, in order to download the 3D terrain model and the quality control reports that meet the requirements of public surveying and i-Construction.
The service users will be able to drastically shorten the process for 3D spatial analysis for public surveying and i-Construction, and the service will enable a dramatic improvement of productivity for all parties involved in the process.
