iXblue, Woolpert Partner to Deliver Lidar Mapping Services to New Zealand Councils

BRISBANE, Australia  — Woolpert and iXblue Sea Operations division, part of the French-based iXblue Group, have been awarded two significant airborne lidar mapping projects in New Zealand, covering over 38,500 square kilometres for the Hawke’s Bay and Waikato regional and local councils.

These projects are part of the New Zealand government’s Provincial Growth Fund Lidar program in which the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, Land Information New Zealand and councils are working together to develop 3D models of landscapes that contribute to the economic development of regional New Zealand.

The lidar information has intended use with land management decisions, road design, precise understanding of sea-level rise impacts, stormwater design, and geohazard mapping including surface change, faults, liquefaction and slips.

iXblue and Woolpert formed their strategic partnership in 2019 and have steadily built its regional capability.  Their key focus is the collection, processing and delivery of airborne digital imagery, topographic lidar and bathymetric lidar operations from helicopter and fixed-wing platforms providing custom solutions to commercial and government clients across Australia and New Zealand.

iXblue’s General Manager Airborne, Matthew James, said: “We are privileged to have been awarded these major projects in New Zealand. The team has built a strong technical offering that aims at using the latest sensors and processing techniques available, with a strong customer relationship focus to deliver world class products.”

“Woolpert is excited to work with our partners at iXblue and participate in the New Zealand projects,” said Joseph Seppi, Woolpert’s Geospatial Sector Leader. “By playing to our firms’ combined strengths, we will deliver highly accurate mapping data with the professional competency and experience that we are known for.”
