Industrial drone solutions provider Terra Drone India has announced that it is joining forces with Canada-based geomatics pioneer Geo-Plus. This partnership makes Terra Drone India an official reseller of Geo-Plus’ innovative land surveying and civil engineering software and mapping solutions in the India market.
Geo-Plus is widely known in the AEC (architecture, engineering, construction) industry for its innovative products. Since the foundation of the company in 1987, Geo-Plus has been offering CAD/GIS solutions for 3D measurement, 3D structure, geometry, cadaster, and document management for territories. Creator of the popular Vision Suite, the software family tailored to land and infrastructure works, Geo-Plus’ solutions are fully integrated with major AEC platforms such as AutoCAD, Civil3D, MicroStation, PowerDraft, and Bricscad.
India’s AEC sector has witnessed a strong focus on innovation and the use of advanced technology in recent years.

To fuel this growth and to build the infrastructure of the future, modern technologies like those offered by Terra Drone India and Geo-Plus are essential.
Together, Terra Drone India and Geo-Plus will be able to provide India’s AEC industry with a wide gamut of solutions and services, including a data-driven approach to Building Information Modeling (BIM).
Lidar point cloud data analysis
Elaborating on his vision behind this strategic partnership, Prateek Srivastava, CEO, Terra Drone India, stated: “Drones have revolutionized land surveying and urban planning across the world. Today, using a drone is the fastest and most efficient way to collect data for developing 3D models of site topography or generating detailed elevation models and contour lines. Geo-Plus’ software is a natural extension to this service because the data we generate is only as good as the software that processes it. Geo-Plus offers a plethora of benefits to engineers and architects, including allowing them to quickly visualize terrain from different angles and simplifying the analysis of Lidar point cloud data.”
Wilfrid Beaupre, CEO, Geo-Plus, said: “For over three decades, we have been helping land professionals to standardize their operations and improve their workflows with a multitude of calculation and analysis tools. With the construction industry in India rapidly going digital, our software can help land surveyors and civil engineers to maximize their return on investment. We are positive that our partnership with Terra Drone India as well as the continued after-sales support that we offer will allow us to meet the most specific and unique requests of each client in India.”
