Geokno is the brainchild of transformative thinkers from IIT Kanpur who embarked on a journey to leverage the power of LiDAR technology to provide smart, tangible and scalable solutions for clients across industries.
The small-knitted team of young researches, along with their faculty members incubated the company on the IITK campus in 2009. Today, Geokno is driven by industry experts with decades of experience in capturing, processing and analyzing LiDAR data. Looking to mature LiDAR technology in India, GMR Group, one of the largest developers in India, acquired the majority stake in Geokno in 2012. With our expertise and passion, combined with the strength of the GMR group, we have evolved as a premier firm in the Geospatial Domain.
At Geokno, we specialize in delivering High-Resolution Aerial Imagery and LiDAR mapping services across India and globally. We focus on bringing unique & evidence-based solutions with an open and collaborative approach to our client's projects. Geokno is at the forefront of the spatial technology revolution, building 3D digital visual representation by mapping real world environments.
We deploy LiDAR systems embedded on airplanes, helicopters or vehicles that enable acquistion of dense and georeferenced XYZ point cloud. Advanced LiDAR systems capture 360 degree aerial images to create accurate & detailed virtual road maps backed by the geospatial data to help our customers with faster and improved decision making.
Geokno's LiDAR mapping technology offers the benefits of acquiring quick, reliable and accurate data of a large area of land. Our high-end systems provide extensive & detailed aerial surveys at any desired resolution, region or topography for multi-sector clientele.
