Applanix has a simple mission - to be the industry leader in the development, manufacture, sales, and support of Mobile Mapping products and solutions. Our technology is specifically designed for commercial applications, including aerial survey and remote sensing, land-based mobile mapping, and marine survey operations – markets we helped pioneer.
Applanix was founded in 1991 on defense and aerospace industry expertise. With global reach and innovative engineering excellence recognized worldwide, the company's Position and Orientation Systems (POS™) are now the industry-standard for airborne, land, and marine survey applications.

Today, we focus on a range of products that provide dynamically accurate measurements of vehicle and sensor position and orientation. Applanix systems integrate precision GPS with advanced inertial technology to provide uninterrupted measurements of the position, roll, pitch and true heading of moving vehicles. By combining GPS and inertial technologies, Applanix offers a fully integrated, turnkey solution for high-productivity in-motion surveying, direct data georeferencing, and robust mobile mapping.
