Sewall and its long-term aerial subcontractor Richard Crouse & Associates, Inc. (RC&A), have entered into a teaming agreement to expand mutual capabilities, services and client base in aerial image and LiDAR data acquisition.

Under the terms of the agreement, RC&A will lease Sewall’s aircraft and associated aerial equipment, positioning the firm to provide faster mobilization across a broader geography to both Sewall and its existing clientele. The agreement positions Sewall to offer clients enhanced services in digital imagery and LiDAR acquisition and a wider range of downstream services in LiDAR processing and analysis—engineering-scale mapping for site design, canopy heights assessment for forest harvest scheduling, and ROW feature classification for powerline, road and rail-line management.

According to David Edson, Sewall CEO/President, “The agreement aligns the companies in a complementary relationship that promotes individual business strengths. RCA will focus on the delivery of geospatial data commodities; Sewall will focus on consulting—developing data, applications, and integrated systems to meet client needs. Together, Sewall and RCA will provide a total offering that will create greater customer value in the marketplace.” The offering combines a range of digital camera systems, sensors, and fixed wing and helicopter aircraft, which will now operate out of three facilities in Maine, Maryland, and South Carolina. RC&A President Richard Crouse says, “The benefits of our teaming arrangement are mutual and long term, enabling RC&A to stay current with the technology, and Sewall to deliver industry-standard solutions based on the technology. It strategically positions both firms for the future.”

What will we do with all of the Apple sensors: NFC, HealthKit, HomeKit, LED Sensors, barometers. Will they portend the beginning of yet another big data assault that will impact geospatial professionals? Will they catapult the “connected home” or “quantified self” craze? How will we use these data? Will standards be part of the adoption and who will own them?
