Blom ASA and CycloMedia have signed a general reseller agreement for all territories in Europe, after completing a successful pilot project in the Nordic countries.
“We are proud to announce the extended and improved partnership with CycloMedia after a successful pilot project to introduce the product in the Nordic countries was conducted”, says Esben Fiane, Managing Director Blom Nordic. “CycloMedia is an important partner to Blom and we look forward to the cooperation and results that we can achieve together”, he continues.
“CycloMedia could not be more thrilled with the new signed partnership agreement with The Blom Group”, says Mark Taris, Marketing Manager CycloMedia Technology BV. “Blom is the largest provider of geospatial services in Europe for both government agencies and private commercial organizations and companies. With their local knowledge they can expand our global footprint beyond our home base in The Netherlands.”
CycloMedia, well-known for its streamlined large scale process of capturing and processing high accuracy panoramic images (approximately 40.000.000 images each year), will be distributed by Blom under the brand BlomSTREET™. Aimed at the professional user, CycloMedia’s technology gives reliable and geographically highly accurate street level spherical images with metric capabilities. This makes it useful for street asset inventory of, for example, lamp posts and road signs or for mapping of street damages. BlomSTREET™ is a value-added service to Blom’s existing product line and will be offered via Blom as both tailor- made contracting work and as off-the-shelf products. The street level imagery will be viewable in Blom’s GIS products BlomWEB Viewer™ and BlomDESKTOP Viewer™, in addition to industry standard GIS such as ESRI, Intergraph and Bentley – giving fast and easy access to the full functionality of the product.
Blom has completed a number of pilot projects across the Nordic countries and additional territories in Southern Europe are planned. For the Nordic countries Blom will be an exclusive provider of CycloMedia’s street level technology and collected data is already available to customers.
