Remote sensing and aerial mapping company joins TU’s international business incubator
Global Imaging Technologies (GIT), an international remote sensing and aerial mapping business, has joined TowsonGlobal, Towson University’s global business incubator, as an associate member.
Governments at all levels and online map providers from around the world are GIT’s largest sources of contracts. The general public is expected to drive significant demand for GIT’s services as emerging technologies are constantly changing.
GIT provides services such as aerial survey system development and integration, digital aerial acquisition with the use of digital aerial mapping cameras, satellite and aerial image processing, and mapping project management. GIT also has successfully developed two imaging systems that are being sold or leased internationally. The company’s focus on providing technologies in the global marketplace complements TowsonGlobal's mission to help early-stage companies learn how to compete in the global market.
"GIT believes there are tremendous growth opportunities before us, as consumers, businesses and governments drive the demand for more and more geospatial data,” says Ryan Johnson, president of Global Imaging Technologies. “We’re looking forward to TowsonGlobal’s assistance as we navigate the complexities of the international marketplace.”
As an associate member, GIT will maintain its own offices but will avail itself of TowsonGlobal's guidance on fine-tuning its business plan, mentoring and networking assistance, suggestions on sources of capital, information on foreign marketing and sales, and more.
"The need for geospatial data—information tied to a geographical location—is increasing rapidly across the globe, says Clay Hickson, TowsonGlobal’s director. “TowsonGlobal is excited to work with Global Imaging Technologies to help it further develop its domestic as well as its international markets."
TowsonGlobal is an important component of Towson University’s Division of Economic and Community Outreach. For more information about TowsonGlobal, the Business Globalization Center, e-mail Clay Hickson, email@example.com.
