Hexagon Buys COWI Aerial Mapping Business
Wednesday, January 29, 2020 | Comments

Hexagon agreed to acquire COWI's aerial mapping business. COWI is an international consulting group with a mapping business that serves as Europe's largest provider of airborne surveying and spatial data processing and key partner of the HxGN Content Program.

Bringing valuable expertise in capturing and selling content as a service (CaaS), COWI's mapping unit has been delivering HxGN content program services in Europe since 2015. With about 400 specialists worldwide, the business provides public administrators, government organizations, infrastructure project stakeholders, utility companies and global internet companies access to the most relevant geospatial data during their planning processes.

"The acquisition of COWI's mapping business is a logical next step to accelerate and strengthen the HxGN content program in Europe," said Hexagon President and CEO Ola Rollén. "Along with the previous acquisitions of North West Geomatics, SigmaSpace, Melown Technologies, and Thermopylae Sciences and Technologies, this acquisition accelerates Hexagon's mission to provide customers with access to the largest on-demand library of professional-grade and quality controlled geospatial data for applications such as asset management, public safety, utility mapping, insurance claims and more."

COWI's mapping business will operate within the geospatial content solutions unit of Hexagon's Geosystems division. The acquisition is expected to be completed during the second quarter, subject to regulatory approvals.
