Woolpert has acquired AAM, a global geospatial services company that specialises in aerial mapping, surveying, GIS, and the development of innovative geospatial processes and technologies.
AAM is headquartered in Australia and has offices across New Zealand, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Woolpert is a U.S.-based architecture, engineering, geospatial (AEG) and strategic consulting firm with 44 offices in three countries.
“With AAM, we gain offices across the South Pacific and the Middle East, and almost double our presence in Africa,” Woolpert President and CEO Scott Cattran said. “Combined with our industry leadership in the United States, this merger signifies a major milestone in attaining our vision of becoming the premier global AEG firm.”
With this merger, AAM, the Australasian geospatial firm, will gain access to additional aircraft and sensor technologies to increase its overall aerial acquisition capacity, and will support Woolpert’s growing mapping activities in the Asia-Pacific region. The companies will combine their cloud-based, artificial intelligence processing pipelines for increasingly automated rapid data processing and product delivery. In South Africa, where Woolpert acquired Southern Mapping in 2019 and where AAM has offices, the firms will collaborate on key technologies to improve operational reach and capacity to the African region. This move makes Woolpert one of the largest, if not the largest, geospatial company in Africa.
