About Kermap

Our Story

Kermap was built on a firm belief, entertained by its co-founders Antoine Lefebvre, Nicolas Beaugendre and Thomas Corpetti. Namely, that satellite imagery and airborne photographs contain a wealth of information. And that most of it lies unused due to a lack of accessibility to local authorities, businesses or even the wider public.

Kermap’s response to this was that AI, i.e. artificial intelligence, should take geospatial expertise to another level. Uniquely rich data can indeed be obtained through the gain in processing power brought about by our deep-learning methods. The magnitude, efficiency and reliability of these innnovative geospatial solutions have already convinced dozens of public and private partners since Kermap was founded in 2017.

French savoir-faire

Kermap’s success relies on a triple expertise. Remote sensing and photointerpretation, to make sense of satelite images and aerial photographs; AI and deep-learning to create computer models that will correctly process massive volumes of data; datavisualisation through tools and platforms facilitating access to information that really matter.

We rely on these cutting-edge geospatial services to efficiently support local authorities, businesses and other public or private organizations in their actions towards environmental transition, sustainable planning and quality of life improvement.
