Autodesk is joining with Skycatch, an aerial data-capture company, to make it easier for designers, engineers, architects, BIM managers, owners and operators to capture and use aerial data. Autodesk is a design and engineering software company for the manufacturing, building, and media and entertainment industries.

Autodesk and Skycatch will use high-resolution aerial data collected by Skycatch to transform the way industrial sites are surveyed. A Skywatch blog said this would mean “allowing companies to make smarter data-driven decisions, while saving time and drastically reducing costs, while Autodesk ReCap delivers an easy, cost-effective solution to process the collected data.”

“Industry professionals using Autodesk software can leverage highly accurate visual intelligence captured and processed by Skycatch’s end-to-end UAV technology to provide invaluable insights into their projects and improve overall efficiency and collaboration across their teams.”
