About SenSat

SenSat digitises the world, recreating places and objects in incredible detail to render them into a virtual environment. Their data helps businesses move decision making from manual and physical to automated and digital. Awarded 'Innovation of the Year' by Construction News, SenSat have supported over $600m in infrastructure builds in the civil and nuclear industries.

SenSat have created Mapp, a technology that allows anyone to interact with the digital world through a cloud based platform. Initially implemented for Nuclear power plants and road construction, the platform is designed to give engineers a real time digital copy of the world by visualising Internet of Things (IoT) sensor data on to a realistic 3D digital map.
