Professional Services – 2020 in Numbers

21 December 2020

While 2020 meant a year of inactivity for many, this certainly wasn’t the case for KOREC’s Professional Services division.

As a key service provider based out of our Huntingdon offices, the division carried on throughout lockdown providing vital survey, scanning and mapping services to help keep the nation’s infrastructure networks open and operating.

Throughout the year the team have travelled the length and breadth of the UK, undertaking high density 3D laser scanning and image capture with the vehicle mounted MX9 scanning system – generating vast amounts of data and imagery along the way.

To celebrate the culmination of this work, over Christmas we held a mini 3-part quiz on our KOREC LinkedIn page, and we are delighted to share the answers with you now.


Question 1 – KOREC’s Professional Services team travelled the length and breadth of the UK throughout 2020 – but exactly how much data did they collect?

Answer – the team captured and processing a whopping 1411km of data – the equivalent of surveying the length of Britain’s roads from Lands’ End to John o’Groats!


Question 2 – The vehicle mounted MX9 has a total of nine 5MP cameras to capture high quality imagery whilst driving. But how many individual images did our team collect in 2020?

Answer – the team collected just over 3 million individual images over the course of the year – enough to build 760,000 panoramas!


Question 3 – A small team based out of our Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire offices, the Professional Services team really do get around. But how many counties did they have active projects in throughout 2020?

Answer – the team have captured data or supported projects in 31 English counties, 2 Scottish, 2 Irish and 1 Welsh – for a total of 36 different counties altogether.

And for the bonus…The team have delivered pointcloud data to clients measuring over 14TB in size – that’s 14 million MB of data!
