Oxford, UK, July 26, 2007: Yotta, the provider of advanced highway data collection technology and services, and part of the Oxford Metrics Group plc, announced that it will acquire Data Collection Ltd (DCL), a highways surveying company in the UK.
DCL will assume the Yotta brand and will now be known as Yotta DCL. Yotta DCL will continue to operate from its offices in Bognor Regis and Leicester with the addition of new offices and a development team in Oxford. Yotta’s expertise in automated image recognition and location plotting will be a great fit with DCL’s highway surveying market pedigree.
DCL provides condition assessment surveys, asset collection services and UKPMS compliant software to Highway Authorities. The company has many long term contracts with its current customers including Cheshire, Derbyshire, and Pembrokeshire County Councils.
This acquisition will profit from DCL’s 15 years of highways surveying pedigree and Yotta’s ability to automatically map the precise location of each and every detail of the highway. Yotta DCL will be able to provide accurate and complete highway survey available, by extracting tiny details from their datasets.
