October 17th, 2018, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Pix4D opened its new R&D office in Madrid, Spain on 1 November 2018. It is the company’s fifth office after Lausanne, San Francisco, Shanghai and Berlin. As a centre of innovation, research and development, the company’s Madrid office will continue to expand and develop its knowledge of photogrammetry and machine learning, with the goal of creating an entirely new solution for the professional drone market. The company develops a line of end-to-end mapping solutions for converting images into georeferenced maps, models and information by using algorithms based on computer vision, photogrammetry and machine learning. Madrid is Europe’s door to Latin America, an important and growing market for the firm. The new office follows the high demand for dedicated tools, with the company having gained 20 000 new customers in the last year alone, according to founder and CEO Dr Christoph Strecha. The new office will cater to both Spain and Latin America, and the team is expected to expand to 25 by 2019.
