Highways contracts for Yotta DCL

Highway services company A-one has awarded contracts worth a total of £290,000 to Yotta DCL, the 3D mapping division of Oxford Metrics Group (OMG).



The most recent contract is for a survey using Yotta DCL’s nanotechnology with high-resolution 360-degree photography for precision mapping of the highway inventory in Highways Agency Area 14, which covers Northumberland, Tyne & Wear and Durham.



The survey will collate details of highway assets in that area including signs, road markings, lampposts and safety barriers. Yotta DCL will provide A-one with a pixel-by-pixel picture of existing inventory to compare with data held on the Highways Agency’s computer system.



Under a similar contract awarded in December 2007, Yotta DCL is currently producing a similar survey of 530km of road network in Highways Agency Area 10 in the north west. A-one’s sister company A-one+ has elected to take a further service contract from Yotta DCL valued at £170,000 to process the video data captured during the course of that Area 10 survey.
